Van Cortlandt village - Bronx

Nestled in the Kingsbridge section of the northwest Bronx is Van Cortlandt Village, a tranquil enclave of tree-lined streets and picturesque homes --- many of which showcase early 20th-century architectural styles, ranging from neo-Georgian to neo-Tudor. With a street plan designed by Frederick Law Olmsted -- designer of both Central Park and Prospect Park -- the area invokes a sense of peaceful, old-world charm.
