Living in the Kingsbridge neighborhood of Bronx

Kingsbridge Apartments

Kingsbridge is a neighborhood in the northwest section of the Bronx. Bordering Van Cortlandt Park, this neighborhood is just north or Marble Hill, just above the tip of Manhattan.


Housing stock in this neighborhood includes several semi-detached rowhouses, as well as a few single-family homes, and several low- to mid-rise apartment buildings. Just about anyone can find a NY apartment here that will fit their needs and their budget.


This community is named after the once-present "King's Bridge" which had been constructed back in 1693, when the Bronx was open farmland and pasture. The bridge was used to cross the Spuyten Duyvil Creek, which has long been nonexistent due to the man-made alteration involving the Marble Hill neighborhood. But the name remained, and some say the bridge still exists below the filled-in creek bed.

This community is served by the number 1 train, which stops at the 231st Street Station, as well as the 238th Street Station. Residents looking to relax on an express bus have the option of hopping on the BxM1 to arrive in Midtown Manhattan in around 50 minutes.


Residents of Kingsbridge apartments are closeby to the enormous Van Cortlandt Park, which offers some of the city's best recreational facilities and greenspace. Depending on which corner of Kingsbridge you found your NY apartment, you might be only a few short blocks from the park.


Broadway is the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, and along it, residents can find several local establishments. One incredibly popular hotspot is the Bronx Ale House on West 238th Street, just off of Broadway. This spot is popular among professional locals, and visitors rave about the free popcorn and rotating draught selection. For a heartier meal 24/7, visit Louie's Dale Diner on West 231st Street, where the diner food is some of the best in the area.
