Riverdale, New York City
Nestled in the North Bronx off the last stop of the 1 train, Riverdale feels worlds apart from Manhattan — and yet this serene, tree-lined neighborhood is an easy commute to the busiest city in the world.
The historic, three-square-mile community offers a truly unique luxury lifestyle, combining the comforts of suburban life with the commerce and connectivity of New York City, bordered to the west by the Hudson River and to the north by Yonkers.
Riverdale was planned as a picturesque residential destination of rolling hills and remarkable views, and was once a summer retreat for wealthy New Yorkers who built their estates along the towering basalt cliffs of the Palisades. Today, the upscale atmosphere remains, with an alluring mix of old charms and new curiosities, trendy cafes, and mom-and-pop shops adorning its winding streets.
At one of the highest elevations in New York City, this vast ‘mini-borough’ offers mesmerizing views of the Empire State Building, the George Washington Bridge, and the Hudson River from the 28-acre Wave Hill Public Garden & Cultural Center, as well as from the comforting confines of your luxury rental apartment.
Briar Hill mixes suburban pleasures with city life in a bucolic country setting in Riverdale, NY, where most residences are owner-occupied houses, condos and co-ops. Only 20 minutes from Manhattan, the four-acre wooded property includes a resort-style outdoor swimming pool, children’s pool, food concession, tennis courts, children’s playground, and fitness center. The luxury apartment building’s spacious studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes feature designer kitchens, custom closets and unparalleled city and river views, many from private balconies.
