Nestled between the southernmost portion of lively Riverdale and the Harlem River, the upscale neighborhood of Spuyten Duyvil offers premium housing and gorgeous river views in the northwest Bronx.
Named after Spuyten Duyvil Creek, the district’s unusual moniker is loosely translated as “sprouting meadow,” which refers to the freshwater spring in the area. Tree-streets sport a mix of single-family homes and luxury co-op buildings. Tudor architecture and stately brick high-rises are a signature look for space, giving the neighborhood a cozy feel. A significant portion of the residential area is owned. Well-attended community organizations and events are a fixture in Spuyten Duyvil.
While not a prime destination for nightlife, the area boasts a wealth of transportation and a breezy commute to Grand Central Station. The neighborhood’s central commercial hub has a collection of luxury boutiques, locally owned restaurants, and familiar chain stores that see a lot of daily foot traffic. Secure parking and proximity to Riverdale make it a comfortable place to call home.
A perfect mix of city convenience and a relaxed suburban feel, Spuyten Duyvil is a popular destination for former Manhattan residents looking to raise growing families in a spacious and peaceful environment with easy access to the city.
