A Little About Riverdale, The Bronx

Yes, The Bronx.  You got a problem with that? ;-)

While grammarians may puzzle over the definite article, historians know that it comes from the Bronck family of Swedish immigrants who settled in the area during colonial times.  Its use is variously attributed to the stylistic manner by which rivers are referred in European languages — The Rhine, The Seine, The Volga, The Liffey (incidentally, there is a Bronx River in the Bronx) — and, more imaginatively, how folks probably used to say they were going to visit The Broncks (family, property).

Famed bucolic enclave in an otherwise often troubled borough, Riverdale is upper middle-class at a minimum and eternally luxurious: the northernmost point in all New York City, it was practically founded over a century ago as an exclusive community for Manhattan moguls of the day.  Indeed, the privately-owned (once a year the streets are closed to outsiders in order to maintain its privately owned legal status) Fieldston neighborhood, most of which is officially recognized as a historic district, preserves much of the way things were over a century and a half ago.  Quieter than quiet, it is to Riverdale what Riverdale is to the rest of the Bronx: leafy, affluent, with widely spaced estates and a very rural atmosphere.

Finally, Riverdale’s also one of the highest points in Gotham, and its hills make it a favorite haunt of city cyclists.  Arguably the most notable sport, however, is hurling, an sport played in the privately-owned Gaelic Park next door in the Kingsbridge neighborhood.
