10. Spuyten Duyvil

Henry Hudson Park is both a recreational and community center for the neighborhood.

Last but not least is the quiet neighborhood of Spuyten Duyvil, located right by Marble Hill in the Bronx. The main attraction of this area is the gorgeous Henry Hudson Park, the home of a massive bronze statue of Henry Hudson that is surrounded by lush greenery and a stunning view of the Spuyten Duyvil Creek. The park is also the place to be for community events that bring residents together.

The neighborhood is host to many small, locally run cafés and restaurants that have a decent mix of Asian and Latin food. This tiny spot is the perfect place to head for a quiet day away from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life.
