When it comes to describing the enduring appeal of the quieter, tree-lined streets and parks of this northern Mount Vernon neighborhood, two words come immediately to mind: location and value.
“It’s a walk-to-the-train neighborhood and a very quick commute to Manhattan,” says Alice Regan, a licensed salesperson with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty in Bronxville. “It’s also very attractive in the sense that it’s close to a lot of parkways.”
She adds that the casual-dining scene is a draw for the community, with a bevy of top eateries, including Johnny’s Pizzeria (cash-only, please), the Caribbean-themed Ripe, King’s Southern Delight, for the quintessential soul-food experience, Fleetwood Bakery (no-joke lobster tails), and the outside-the-box Ice Cream Factory, for those with serious sweet-cred. Throw in quaint parks and playgrounds, and you wind up with a fun, affordable community.
