Whether you’re interested in food, art, history or entertainment, there’s plenty of ground for you to cover in this storied borough. For those with culinary exploration in mind, Arthur Avenue serves up an authentic taste of Italy with family-owned shops and restaurants lining this festive Belmont block. If it’s history you’re after, the 18th-century Van Cortlandt House Museum is a must for anyone interested in architecture or wartime tales of the neighborhood’s past. The museum is located within Van Cortlandt Park, an expansive 1,146 acres ideal for taking in the crisp fall air, playing a round of golf or relaxing lakeside. For more ways to take in the beauty of the season, make your way to Riverdale’s Wave Hill, where striking views of the Hudson River and New Jersey’s Palisades blend seamlessly with winding paths and colorful foliage.
