"Looking for a quaint suburban neighborhood within a private community in NYC? Then Fieldston is an area to consider. A small, leafy enclave within the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx, Fieldston captures the bucolic charm of a Westchester neighborhood without having to leave the city proper. Bound by the Henry Hudson Parkway to the north and west, Broadway to the east, and Waldo Avenue/Manhattan College Parkway to the south, the neighborhood provides a great backdrop for large, upscale homes with well-sized lots and beautiful tree-lined streets. The area is managed by the Fieldston Property Owners Association, an organization funded by the residents to maintain streets, utilities, and landscaping. Many sections of Fieldston have been designated as historic and a number of its landmarked homes have been featured in architecture and design magazines. Several classic examples of Craftsman, Medieval, Mediterranean, and Tudor designs dot the landscape. This is not your typical cookie-cutter suburban neighborhood. Fieldston is regarded for its schools, many of them private. The Horace Mann and Ethical Culture Fieldston schools, known for their top-notch academics and price tags to match, are two of the best known landmarks in the area. Many of their students come all the way from Manhattan. In addition, Manhattan College is located in the Southeast corner of the neighborhood While car is the most convenient way to get around the neighborhood, Fieldston provides easy access by public transit for commuters to Manhattan via subway (1 local), Metro North, along with several express bus lines. In addition, the Henry Hudson Parkway provides direct access to Manhattan with a 15-20 minute drive to Midtown." By: Eric Levy

    Expensive, but gorgeous if you want to walk and visit. Love that it is so green right near the City!

    My favorite neighborhood in the Bronx, hands down. Beautiful tree-lined streets with magnificent homes.
