Living in the Edenwald neighborhood of Bronx


Edenwald Apartments

Think uptown. I mean-- way uptown. Edenwald sits on the northern edge of the Bronx, clustered with similar neighborhoods like Wakefield and Woodlawn Heights.

 

But sitting near the border of Westchester County should bring more to mind than just a long commute. Positive aspects, like cheaper rent and quiet living, make this neighborhood an attractive option for those aiming to relocate away from the city.

 

Edenwald is fairly split when it comes to housing options, as some sections sport entire blocks of brick rowhouses, while others are lined with single-family homes and duplexes. And even if you're still looking for the typical NY apartment layouts, there are several multifamily buildings scattered about the area. With a central location between two of the Bronx's largest parks, renting Edenwald apartments is often a pleasant choice.

 

Living Near The Parks In Edenwald

Although somewhat distant from Manhattan, the northern section of the Bronx displays two massive examples of New York's beautiful greenspaces. Just less than a mile west of Edenwald sits Van Cortlandt Park, a quasi-natural refuge for rest and play. Here, several open fields and athletic courts provide the Bronx with over 1,100 acres of fresh air and greenery.

 

Also claiming a large chunk of the borough is Pelham Bay Park, located in the northeasternmost section of the Bronx. At over 2,700 acres, this natural wonderland is the City's largest park and one of the most respected. Wildlife sanctuaries meet wilderness in this enormous space about a mile east of Edenwald.

 

But no visitor should overlook the neighborhood's own Seton Falls Park--regarded as one of New York's most spectacular and peaceful areas. With just a few oases of this kind left in the City, this natural pocket of Edenwald is one of the borough's great undiscovered spots.

 

Getting Around Edenwald--And The City

Edenwald is a fairly car-centric community, with most residents commuting by vehicle. However, if you'd prefer to take public transit, there are a few local bus options that will satisfy your basic needs. Along the Bx16 route is one of the closest subway stations to the neighborhood. Eastchester-Dyre Avenue Station, which is in neighboring Eastchester, sits just a few blocks east, and serves the area with the number 5 train. For a more comfortable ride (albeit, a bit more expensive, too) the Woodlawn Station along the Metro-North Railroad is about a mile west of Edenwald, but takes passengers directly to Grand Central Terminal in just over 30 minutes.

 

This neighborhood has a fairly large selection of housing styles for whatever suits your needs. Yet, although the commute may be a bit tricky without a car, relocating into Edenwald apartments will create a nice disconnect between "work" and "home."
