The fact that Riverdale is located on a high hill that divides it from the rest of the city is one of the topographical qualities that lend it a suburban feel. At 284.5 feet above sea level, the ridge’s highest point is near Iselin Avenue and 250th Street in North Riverdale. The residential community is made up of single-family homes along with apartment-style complexes. The area is considered fairly safe, with a limited amount of serious crimes in the area.
Locals of North Riverdale united with Yonkers residents in protesting the development of the Riverdale Classic Residence, a 17-story retirement community on Riverdale Avenue, in 1998. Although the building would be located in Yonkers, people in North Riverdale were concerned that it would tower above the neighborhood’s smaller apartment buildings and single-family homes due to its location on the top of a hill. Despite the complaints, the building was completed at its original height without the need for a review.
