Welcome to Riverside! This residential waterfront community is bordered by the Mianus River to the west and used to be a small fishing and oystering village. These days, the area attracts house hunters from NYC looking for a peaceful small town vibe less than an hour from midtown.
The Riverside neighborhood is just about two square miles with over 8,400 residents and panoramic views of the Long Island Sound. You’ll find some good sized wooded lots and more breathing room than Old Greenwich offers. The adjacent towns offer a variety of shopping and entertainment options.
The family-oriented Riverside Yacht Club hosts major regattas and provides sailing and boating lessons for all ages. Riverside Avenue Bridge, the only cast iron bridge in the state, is on the National Register of Historic Places and was originally built in Stratford in 1871.
