Riverdale's winding, tree-lined streets and stately single-family homes may make you think you're not even in New York City anymore. This suburban enclave in the northwestern Bronx is one of the few places in New York City where you’ll find stately single-family homes, rock walls, winding roads (some without sidewalks) and mature trees.
Whether you're looking for a pint of ale and an evening of original Irish-inspired theater, a cricket match between West Indian devotees or a step back in time at Colonial-era Van Cortlandt House, Riverdale is full of surprises. Van Cortlandt Park, on Riverdale’s eastern border, is twice the size of Central Park and attracts hikers and mountain bikers. It’s also home to the Bronx’s largest freshwater lake, a nature center that offers workshops and walking tours, plus vast cricket fields.
