North Riverdale Reviews
We have two marvelous features in this neighborhood: Van Cortlandt Park and Wave Hill Gardens. Overall, the area is leafy and pleasant. You can live without a car here--we do--but a car will give you greater opportunity for food shopping in Yonkers and Westchester, as our local supermarkets are pretty awful. We have our own Metro North train station for easy commuting to Manhattan and to points north.
I love that I am close to Manhattan, only a 1 hour commute or less! I also enjoy the company of the friends I have here. However, this town would be better off without certain people...
The atmosphere is very welcoming. The people in this town are diverse, but we share similar goals. Many people share similar customs and most of us have gone to school with each other since we were little. There is an overall closeness that the town has to offer. i would definitely choose to live here again. We are a close distance to the city and the subway and metro north are in walking distance. This is nice because you can always hop on a train to the city to change things up. The restaurants and stores are in walking distance as well which is very convenient.
