Riverdale is a residential neighborhood in the northwest portion of the Bronx, a borough in New York City. It covers about 3 square miles (7.8 km2) in area. It has one of the highest elevations in New York City, affording it views of the Empire State Building, George Washington Bridge, Hudson River and New Jersey Palisades. It is also noted for the numerous parks and expanses of greenery and original forest that complement its hilly landscape.
Early in its residential development, Riverdale was a 19th-century estate district where many of Manhattan’s moguls built their country estates; for example, in northern Riverdale, what is now Fieldston was part of the estate of Major Joseph Delafield, who purchased 250 acres (100 ha) in 1829, and named it after his family’s estate in England. At the turn of the century, the new popularity of railroad commute enabled wealthy businessmen to make Riverdale their year-round residence.
