On the eastern shore of the Hudson River just a few miles north of iconic Yankee Stadium, Riverdale, New York is an affluent neighborhood in the Bronx borough of New York City. Recently, archaeologists discovered Native American artifacts dating back centuries and when the English and Dutch got to New York in the 1600’s they found the Siwanoy tribe living along the banks of the Hudson, named after English navigator Henry Hudson. Hudson first explored the New York region in the first decade of the 17th century in search of the fabled Northeast Passage, a rumored waterway across North America to trading routes with China. Sailing for the Dutch East India Company, Hudson first sailed up the river which bears his name in 1609. He soon learned, however, that the river did not lead to the channel he sought and he returned to England. Hudson’s final attempt at finding the passage led to misfortune as his crew mutinied, setting Hudson and his son adrift on Hudson Bay in a small boat. The great sailor was never heard from again. In the following years, Dutch settlers began flooding into the New York and Bronx areas, soon coming into conflict with the Siwanoy who they either bought off or killed outright between 1620 and 1660. The Riverdale area remained mostly woodlands until the 1800’s when it became a residential neighborhood for Manhattan’s ultra-rich who established large estates. One of the first large developments was built by Major Joseph Delafield, a veteran of the War of 1812 and one of the chief negotiators in creating the U.S. border with Canada. Today, Delafield Estates remains an upscale neighborhood in Riverdale. The real estate website Niche gives Riverdale an overall grade of A+ as one of the best New York City communities for families.
It’s certain that a Riverdale tutor will be able to keep you caught up on your most demanding academic courses so you can take some time away from the books to enjoy Riverdale and the Bronx. Originally developed in the 1840’s, Wave Hill in the northern part of the neighborhood is a 28-acre estate which today is both a public garden and cultural center. Over the years a variety of rich and powerful people have lived at Wave Hill including the family of Theodore Roosevelt, and Mark Twain who leased the property between 1901-1903. The property was given to the city in the 1960’s and today offers educational programs in horticulture, environmental education and visual and performing arts.
Just a few miles from Riverdale, the New York Botanical Garden is not only a living museum of native plants but also a premier educational and research institution. The 250-acre grounds are home to more than one million plants in 50 different collections. Exhibitions include a wrought-iron frame greenhouse dating to the 1890’s, now called the Haupt Conservatory, the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden and a Japanese Zen Buddhist garden. New York Botanical Garden offers educational programs on plant science, ecology and nutrition. Over one million visitors a year tour the garden.
Originally constructed in 1923, Yankee Stadium in the Bronx is the home of Major League Baseball’s New York Yankees and is frequently referred to as “The House that Ruth Built” or “The Cathedral of Baseball.” Hall of Famers Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle and Reggie Jackson played in the original stadium until it was torn down and replaced in 2009. The new facility, one block from the original, seats 47,000 and is also home to the recently organized New York City FC of Major League Soccer.
