Kingsbridge

Located in the northwest Bronx, in the valley just below the neighborhood of Riverdale, Kingsbridge offers a relaxed environment. The housing stock includes single-family homes, duplexes, pre-war walk-ups, and mid-rise apartment buildings. The residential buildings in the area have beautiful red brick façades and updated interiors.

Landmarks include Manhattan College and Gaelic Park on 240th Street and Broadway. The park is a popular venue for sports games, including college football and hurling.

Its vibrant commercial strip includes a shopping district and a burgeoning restaurant scene that appeals to New Yorkers who appreciate quality goods and amazing food. From indie boutiques to yoga studios, those who live here can look forward to new stores opening as demand for residential space in the community continues to grow.

The neighborhood also has plenty of green space, with clean and well-maintained parks have greatly benefited from beautification projects over the last few years, and reputable schools to accommodate the growing but tight-knit population.

Community events like live performances, lectures, and personal enrichment classes bring residents together and offer opportunities to meet new people.

The neighborhood is bounded by the Major Deegan Expressway to the east, Irwin Avenue to the west, Van Cortlandt Park to the north, and West 230th Street to the south, with Broadway as the main thoroughfare.

It gets its name from The King’s Bridge, which was built in 1693, and which spanned Spuyten Duyvil Creek before the creek bed was filled in 1914. The bridge was a Boston Post Road route, connecting the area to Marble Hill.

Up until the late 19th century, Kingsbridge was part of Yonkers until the community broke off and got annexed by New York City in 1874, along with two other towns that would form the western portion of the Bronx.

Today, it is one of the most desirable places to live in the outer boroughs, with a diverse housing market and plenty of opportunities for recreation.
