What size apartment are you seeking in the area, as that can determine price? Yes, there are apartments at that location, though it's a co-op building. It's across the street from three schools and light mixed use properties on Irwin, where Irwin and Johnson meet, a couple of gas stations, and a transmission shop. There is also a bus stop in the immediate area. It's a short walk to the subway, however, at 231st from that location. Basically, the building sits at the end of W230th before Irwin and Riverdale ascend respective hills.

I am interested in a 1 bedroom/ 1 bath unit. Something close to public transportation, in a safe neighborhood. Would you happen to have any information on this particular apartment building? Your feedback is appreciated.

1BR/1BA in Riverdale, depending upon size, building, etc. could be anywhere from just under $1000 on the low end nearer the Yonkers border (away from transportation) to $2500+ for a full-service building. There's quite a variance because of the different types of apartments available, ranging from 1BRs in townhouse-style multi-family buildings with no amenities to those in co-ops, and those in full-service buildings. With a co-op rental, you would have to be interviewed by the board, but some of the boards are very friendly, and only look to financial qualification, unlike some of the more notorious Manhattan co-op boards.

All I know about the building is from someone who knows a family member of mine who owns a co-op in the building, and they like it very much. The bus is practically at the front door, and the subway is only a few short blocks away on Broadway & W231st. W230th is not the prettiest street, but where this building is located, has no adverse impact, save for the traffic if you are not on the park side of the building.

You would likely rent through a broker for any available units at that building, unless the co-op owners are allowed to post listings on Craigslist or some other similar site. Local brokers would be your best bet for inventory at that building, and there are a few in the area. The Riverdale Press is also a good resource, both to find a broker, and perhaps a listing in that particular building.

There are city buses that traverse both hills into Riverdale, to Spuyten Duyvil and Central Riverdale, that connect with the subway. Also, if you are close to W238th, below Riverdale Avenue, you can walk to the W238th Street subway stop as there is a stair street that connects the neighborhood to Broadway and the subway.

Riverdale is also known as NOMA aka North of Manhattan.

Riverdale Ave runs in 2 sections, and there's no 11260 Riverdale Ave to my knowledge

the avenue runs from Yonkers at W 263rd street (6300) to W 254th street (5400) and then from W 239th street (3900) to 230th street (3000)

so your Riverdale Avenue house #'s are limited to 3000-3900 and then from 5400-6300, give or take a few

anything in between those house #'s is Henry Hudson Parkway(east or west) to further confuse things!!)

I plugged in the address you were looking for before, and looked at the building, but rlrl is right. It's not 11260. The building you're looking for at that location on google maps, as it will pull it up under that is 3015-3017 Riverdale Avenue, next to the park, as it is a double building. I spoke with the person I know who asked the person they know in the building and they said that apartments rent in the $1200-$1800 range in that complex.

NoMa was a marketing construct designed to sell a particular building at Manhattan prices, a building that had a few flaws, yet attempted to retain a higher sales price point. Nobody refers to the area as NoMa, just Riverdale.
