East Harlem is a vibrant community featuring a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, and retail. Grab a beer at Santiago’s Beer Garden, a slice of pizza from the iconic Patsy’s Pizzeria, or a coveted table at Rao’s for a bowl of pasta. For a quick pick me up, coffee at El Barrista Cafe is right across the street - grab a cup on your way to the East River Plaza, where you can stop at Target, Aldi, Costco, and more.

Commuting is a breeze with the 6 train just outside your door, and midtown 25 minutes away. Weekend out of the city? The Jubilee is conveniently located near the 125th street Metro-North Station, where a jaunt to Beacon or work in Westchester is just an easy ride north.

Transportation to Manhattan couldn’t be easier. By car, midtown is a 30-minute ride, or hop a train for 22-minute direct service to Grand Central Terminal. The Henry is a four minute walk to the Bx10, Bx20, BxM1, BxM2 and BxM18…though once you’re here, you may never want to leave.

Many young families are attracted to Riverdale by the schools that grace the neighborhood. At the public elementary, middle and high schools, test scores surpass city averages.

Enjoy the myriad parks convenient to The Henry, including Henry Hudson Park, Setan Park, and the expansive Van Cortlandt Park, which features an olympic-size pool, beach volleyball, tennis courts, stables, and acres of green space.

Riverdale is a destination for dining in the Bronx. The neighborhood fulfills the foodie in everyone, with plenty of international influences reflecting the vibrancy of the neighborhood. Moss Cafe, Bronx Alehouse, Lloyd’s Carrot Cake, and Aoyo Sushi are just a few local favorites.
