Around Williamsbridge

Proximity to Bronx Park and the New York Botanical Garden, which is on the western side of Williamsbridge, is prime real estate for homeowners. Most public transportation runs along Laconia Avenue, making the eastern side more accessible to those who rely on commuting into the city. The smaller community of Olinville, a subset of Williamsbridge, has integrated strict building codes in an effort to preserve older buildings, which makes it more desirable for those looking for a piece of history. Homes range greatly in size in Williamsbridge—from small studios to sprawling single-family homes with plenty of character.

White Plains Road and Allerton Avenue are the two main thoroughfares where you’ll most likely find restaurants. There are loads of locally owned Jamaican and Caribbean eateries with loyal customers. Most spots are small, straightforward, and willing to let the food speak for itself. There are also the usual fast food chains as you travel closer to Boston Road, and you won’t see any formal restaurants in this part of town.

The neighborhood of Williamsbridge itself isn’t green. The streets are mostly lined with housing and small businesses. But the prospect of Bronx Park and all the wildness it has to offer looms nearby. The iconic Agnes Haywood Playground is a must-visit for those with children. A local library, a few churches, and plenty of friendly neighbors give Williamsbridge the quintessential Bronx feeling of rooted community.

When you’re this close to Bronx Park, it’s hard to imagine wanting to spend a Sunday anywhere else. Start with a breakfast run at Coffee Bay before making the 15-minute walk to the park. Once you’re there, rent a bike to explore more efficiently or take your time getting lost. Sign up for a volunteer-led nature walk or walk all the way to the New York Botanical Garden, depending on what you’re in the mood for. Try Kiraku for a well-deserved dinner of the neighborhood’s favorite Japanese fare.
