Manhattan Living in Riverdale, NYC's Best Kept Secret: Upper Upper West Side

The Solaria, Riverdale, NY


Just north of Manhattan's west side on the Hudson river is the beautiful enclave of Riverdale. The Solaria is the tallest building in Riverdale. The sleek new 20-story, 65-unit Solaria offers floor-to-ceiling glass apartments.

Rising high above the cityscape, most residences feature oversized balconies that graciously expand private living areas and offer breathtaking views from sunrise to sunset. Awe-inspiring protected vistas including the Hudson River, Palisades, George Washington Bridge, Long Island Sound, Van Cortland Park and Manhattan.

Solaria’s kitchens are stylishly efficient and stunningly appointed with spacious cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops and top-of-the-line Viking, Fisher & Paykel, and Dacor appliances. Storage and countertop space are abundant. Each kitchen has an operable window through which sunlight streams in.

Master Baths are posh and inviting, with Jerusalem stone walls and floors, stone countertops and cherry wood vanities with dual sinks, Toto toilets and radiant-heated floors. Luxuriate in the deep, Zuma soaking tub or frameless glass-enclosed shower. Provide your children or guests with complete privacy because every bedroom was designed to have a dedicated bathroom.

The building offers Manhattan quality in Riverdale. Riverdale once NYC's best-kept secret is known for quality public and private schools. Schools for students from kindergarten to 12th grade as well as several college campuses and numerous synogogues and churches. 

Riverdale has beautiful parks, convenient transportation to Manhattan by bus, subway, and commuter rail. Riverdale has many stately castle-like homes and the neighborhood has elite private schools including Fieldston, Riverdale Country School, and Horace Mann. Riverdale is in a sense the closest northern suburb of New York City although it's within New York City boundaries.

One, two, three, and four bedrooms units are available starting at $660,000. Abated taxes and low Common Charges complete the package at Solaria.

How nice.  I love the kitchen.  The price even seems good for the location.

Good luck finding a buyer.

Hi Mitchell... What a great looking building and a nice price too!  Good luck with it!

Lenn, Thanks, the kitchens are really nice. Great prices compared to Manhattan. A 3 bedroom 3.5 bath apartment is much less than a 2 bedroom 2 bath in a similar luxury Manhattan building.

Hi Steve, Thank you. The apartments are beautiful and great deals too.

Pat, The GW Bridge is quite spectacular at night. I'm looking forward to seeing you in NY.

Mitchell  What beautiful finishes!  In Fayetteville there's no way a 20-story building could be a secret to anyone  :)

Mitchell, I love Riverdale. As a kid I lived in Marble Hill (just outside of Riverdale), but always hung out in Riverdale. I would love to live there. Great looking building, great pics!

In a year and a half, I will have 2 kids in college. Maybe my wife and I can sell our house and move to Riverdale.
