Riverdale Real Estate
Riverdale real estate provides people the opportunity to have a quiet lifestyle, without removing them too far from the busy, urban Manhattan way of life. Riverdale, which is located in the heart of the Bronx, is just east of the Hudson River. It is also bordered by Yonkers, a city in Westchester County, on the north, Van Cortlandt Park on the east and the Harlem River on the south. The more than 47,000 people that reside in Riverdale enjoy a quaint, peaceful lifestyle.
Riverdale was originally considered a sanctuary for wealthy nineteenth century tycoons who needed a break from their hectic lives. Covered by a lot of green area, Riverdale was the place where such people built their country estates. The arrival of the twentieth century brought rise to many apartment buildings and other houses in the area. Now, in the twenty-first century, many single-family homes, coops and rentals can be found in Riverdale. Just a short 25-minute train ride from Manhattan via the Metro-North service, this neighborhood is a convenient location for those people who prefer a more suburban lifestyle.
Quiet and convenience is not the only thing that Riverdale provides its residents. Some of its history can be captured in a botanical garden called Wave Hill, which houses two mansions as well as various art showcases and concerts. For those who really enjoy historical art, the Derfner Judaica Museum is also located in Riverdale and displays Jewish art and culture. Another prominent part of Riverdale is its education. Three exceptional private schools, two Roman Catholic colleges and the Academy for Jewish Religion are all located in Riverdale, in addition to public elementary, middle and high schools. With so much to offer, Riverdale is a calm alternative to the busy New York City lifestyle.
