A neighborhood in the Bronx with nice, upper-middle class people who just DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN MANHATTAN. Really stinks for reputation because it's in the BRONX and everyone thinks of the BRONX as a horrible neighborhood. I bet Riverdale is as nice as most of the neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. Riverdale is actually perfect because you very close to the city (10 minutes by car, 20 - 40 minutes by subway) but your not overcrowded into apartments like Manhattan and you have some nature and air to BREATHE. GOSH.
Wife - "umm so we want a house thats nice but I still wanna go to my favorite restaurant in Manhatten."
Husband - "LETS MOVE TO RIVERDALE!!"
