"Interesting and Quiet"

Manhattan College Parkway, the heart of the Bronx, is one of the most thriving areas around here. It spreads between Manhattan College and one of the most prevalent 1 line subway station. Unfortunately, there is no bus service up here, so that is a bit inconvenient, but the area itself is worth a look. It is partly a residential area, with some lovely restaurants. It is a fairly quiet area, and quite green compared to its environment. The houses here are considered upscale, especially because the lack of public transportation gives it a more exclusive feel. I have a feeling that most residents here own a car, and are able to get around. It’s a nice place to visit, although maybe not so great to live if you need to get downtown fast.

"Heart of Riverdale-What's Not to Like?"

Manhattan College Parkway, predictably, gets it name from Manhattan College. It begins on the East at Broadway, right where the number one subway ends. There are no buses that go up there, so you would have to take a taxi, as it probably wouldn't be practical to walk unless you were going only part way.

In the beginning, there are some apartment buildings and a restaurant, and then you get to some really lovely apartment buildings and a home for the elderly. You will pass Manhattan College on your right. Then the road bears left and heads up the hill.

Like most of Riverdale, Manhattan College Parkway is green and leafy. As you continue on, you start coming to beautiful big private houses, many of them selling for much more than a million dollars, even in this market. Riverdale is a place that is in the city but still maintains a suburban feel. The drawback is the lack of public transportation, but at the same time, that's also part of it's charm and contributes to the suburban feel. Unless you are a kid, this will not be an issue for you if you live here, as I am sure that all residents have at least one car, a necessity in this neck of the woods.
