Glenwood Properties: Riverdale

Riverdale Neighborhood

At more than three square miles, Riverdale is one of the largest New York City neighborhoods, leading some to call it a “mini-borough.” There are several neighborhoods-within-the-neighborhood including North Riverdale, Fieldston, Central Riverdale, South Riverdale and Spuyten Duyvil. The area boasts one of the highest elevations in New York City, affording spectacular views of the Empire State Building, George Washington Bridge, and the Hudson River. Riverdale offers a very suburban feel with some of the most beautiful tree-lined streets in New York.

Lincoln Center

Fifty years ago, Lincoln Center was a bold experiment, a collection of the world's premier performing arts institutions together in one extraordinary place.  Born over time, Lincoln Center’s programs will continue to evolve for generations to come. Come see how this cultural destination, located in the heart of New York City, choreographs history one act at a time.

American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History is across the street from Central Park and houses artwork, dinosaur bones, research laboratories, and libraries.  With a wealth of historical specimens worthy of display, only a small fraction can be featured from day to day.  Thus, their exhibitions change continuously, creating a new experience every time.

Beacon Theatre

This legendary theater was built to show films and vaudeville acts, and it produces everything from the Tony Awards, to Conan O’Brien’s “Late Night” specials, to the Allman Brothers Band.  There’s not a bad seat in the house, and the architecture itself, complete with murals, gold leaf and Grecian highlights, proves as impressive as the acts onstage.

Belvedere Castle

Located on the edge of Central Park, Belvedere Castle boasts one of the most fantastic views of the Park’s Great Lawn.  The sophisticated technology which crowns this Victorian manse measures the temperature in the Park, broadcast on TV and radio stations worldwide.
