I became so enamoured of the Van Cortlandt Village/Kingsbridge Heights area while doing ForgottenTour 37 around the (temporarily dry) Jerome Park Reservoir that I resolved to return and explore these two obscure Bronx enclaves a little more in-depth, and that’s exactly what I did on September 20, 2009. There’s no clear boundary between the two neighborhoods, so I’ll just say that you can find each of them east of Broadway, south of Van Cortlandt Park, west of Mosholu Parkway and the reservoir, and north of Kingsbridge Road. Unlike most of NYC, streets lazily wind up and down hills and the pace is rather languid. It’s the Bronx, though — stay on your toes.
