The neighborhood is a wonderful mix of city and suburb. It offers the amenities and proximity to Manhattan that many New Yorkers desire. That’s mixed with the idyllic, leafy setting perched on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River and Spuyten Duyvil Creek.

This quiet, restful setting has proven to be popular with older Manhattanites looking for a little more peace in their life. However, word is getting out about the perfect balance that the neighborhood strikes, and younger 20-somethings, professionals, and families are making their way up to the Bronx to be a part of the idyllic community themselves.
