The North Riverdale neighborhood is one of the northernmost parts of the Bronx, sharing its northern border with Yonkers in Westchester County. Known for its quiet, suburban nature, the community is said to offer the best of both worlds of New York City – the calming and friendly nature of suburbia, but within easy reach of Midtown Manhattan. The average rent in the neighborhood is around $1,900, making these affordable housing units a great bargain for those who qualify.
The housing lottery deadline is Sept. 2. Interested renters should send in their application by mail or online.
