Riverdale

Riverdale was once a summer retreat for wealthy New Yorkers who built large estates and Tudor-style mansions along the cliffs overlooking the Hudson River and The Palisades. Many of these properties still remain, which lends an upscale, polished atmosphere to the neighborhood's windy, tree-lined streets. Although certain pockets recall the tonier Westchester towns to the north, Riverdale is far more diverse. The neighborhood has long been home to large communities of Irish and Jewish families -- many of whom own and operate local businesses along Riverdale Avenue. In addition to large single-family homes, Riverdale also features many co-op complexes, which offer families more affordable housing options, but still the same easy, bucolic pace of life.
