It is my goal to write this traveler blog to showcase parts of NY that people don't always think about visiting. Everyone writes about Mid-town, Times Square, The Village, hell they even write about Williamsburg. But there is not a lot written most of the outer boroughs, or Manhattan north of 116th street. You know, the places where most REAL New Yorkers live.
So this will be a place to read about my favorite places, the places I've discovered. So let's start with my home neighborhood - Riverdale.
Riverdale (see map) is the neighborhood that in the North-west corner of the Bronx. (that is only borough actually attached to the mainland). There are three main reasons I would travel to Riverdale.

Most of all Riverdale is neighborhood. a place where people live, eat, work and play. It is the kind of place that most tourist books ignore, but that is well worth visiting and hanging out in.
