Our top Riverdale Moving Tips

Though there is some disagreement on the official bounds of the neighborhood, it’s generally agreed that Riverdale starts in the north where Yonkers ends then goes south all the way to the Harlem River. East to west, it stretches from Van Cortlandt Park and runs into the Hudson River.

There’s much more to know than where Riverdale starts and ends, however. Keep reading for a few details we think new residents should be privy to:

  • Getting around. You’ll have a number of ways to get to and from this neighborhood if you make it your home. With a proximity to the George Washington Bridge, the Henry Hudson Parkway, and Interstate I-97, you’ll have easy access to New Jersey, Manhattan, and Upstate New York with your personal vehicle. Don’t fret though if you don’t have a car of your own. Riverdale residents can also use the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) buses, subway (the 1 train line) and the Metro-North train. Fares will vary (for example, a one-way ticket on the subway is $2.75, but a ride on Metro-North will vary depending on your final destination, typically $4 to $14), but it’s still one of the most economical ways to get around and New Yorkers of all types use it on the daily.
  • More square footage for your money. Real estate in these parts can be quite grand to pretty suburban. There are large properties atop the hills that feature grand views of the Hudson River and the gardens that line it. There are also fairly typical single-family houses, co-ops, and apartment buildings in the area. Owning property in Riverdale will run between $400K on the lower end to upwards of $2M for one of the mansions with magnificent views. Renting a place of your own will perhaps be a little below average compared to other parts of the city, but it’s still up there. For a studio, you may be looking at an average of $1,200 a month. A one-bedroom averages about $1,950 per month and can go all the way up to $3K for three bedrooms (but that could look more economical if you’re planning on having roommates). While the prices aren’t shockingly lower than other costly parts of the city, what you get is more space in quaint, quieter surroundings.
  • What to do and see. What you won’t find much of in Riverdale is an enviable nightlife. There are casual bars and plenty of dining options. So, if you enjoy a more low-key lifestyle or are bringing a family along for the move, this may be perfectly fine. What Riverdale has in spades is beautiful outdoor space. If you’re fond of the birds and the trees, check out the 50 acres of trees of the black birch, oak, black cherry, and hickory varieties at Riverdale Park Reserve and Wallenberg Forest. The nearby park land is home to a number of bird species, so this may be a great stop for the casual or aspiring birder. For those who fawn over flora and fauna, you may consider a membership to Wave Hill. The home at this location was previously inhabited by some notable names, including Mark Twain and Theodore Roosevelt. What surrounds the home is even more impressive — including botanical gardens, greenhouses, an outdoor art gallery, and space for live performances. Then of course, there’s the gem of the Bronx — Van Cortlandt Park. Several times larger than Central Park, this green space is a paradise for those who enjoy the outdoors. Contained within its bounds, you’ll find Mosholu Golf Course (the only course in NYC) and Gaelic Park, the athletic facility used by the sports teams at Manhattan College. Gaelic Park isn’t just for sports though, it houses a cultural center that has hosted the performances of greats including the Grateful Dead and Deep Purple in the 1970s. It’s hard to deny that this neighborhood has some legendary outdoor space.
  • Getting a great education. From elementary to higher education, this neighborhood is known for high standards in learning. For starters, residents here have an 89% higher rate of gaining their Bachelor’s Degree than the national average. And when it comes to growing up here and getting an education, there are a number of highly ranked public and private schools. For instance, Riverdale is the location of several Ivy Preparatory league schools serving Pre-K through 12 grades: Horace Mann School, Riverdale Country School, and Ethical Culture Fieldston School. Plus, younger family members or anyone seeking another degree won’t have to travel far to sign up for college classes at Manhattan College and College of Mount St. Vincent. Any way you slice it, Riverdale is a great place to learn and grow.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

  • star star star star star

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

  • star star star star star

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

  • star star star star star

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
