Fieldston is a wealthy, exclusive neighborhood in the Bronx consisting of leafy streets lined with stately brick homes. It's actually a privately owned community, which means the residents who all contribute to the property owners association, can decide who's allowed in. In the past, they've barricaded streets to block traffic cutting through or trying to drop kids off at the schools.

About those schools: Fieldston is home to three of the best private schools in the city. The education costs upwards of $40,000 per year, but these schools do send many students to some of the top colleges and universities in the country.

All the amenities here are located on Broadway (yes, the same Broadway that winds its way up through Manhattan), which forms the eastern boundary of Fieldston. You'll find a few restaurants, a couple barber shops, a deli, a laundromat, a pharmacy, and not much else.

One of the perks of the neighborhood is its location next to the sprawling Van Cortlandt Park. This 1,146 acre (464 hectare) park is the Bronx's answer to Manhattan's Central Park. It features athletic fields, tennis courts, fishing, hiking, horseback riding trails, barbecue areas, a running track, and more.

Tudor houses, Colonials, and the aforementioned brick mansions are the norm. You'll even find a French-style castle here, located on the highest point of the neighborhood. For mere mortals, there are a number of large apartment buildings the line the road abutting Van Cortlandt Park.

You'll likely need a car here, though there is a subway stop and a metro stop along Broadway.

Fieldston is bordered on the north by North Riverdale, on the east by Van Cortlandt Park, on the south by Kingsbridge, and on the west by Riverdale.
