Fieldston is a small neighborhood that sits just south of Yonkers in the northwestern part of the Bronx. Butting up against the New York/New Jersey border, Fieldston is affluent, boasting mostly high-end living and the large Manhattan College campus. The neighborhood is encircled by Henry Hudson Parkway to its north and west, with Van Cortlandt Park taking up the entirety of its eastern border. The area is well removed from some of the more urban landscapes of the rest of New York City, hidden in trees and winding roads that follow the terrain. Though its proximity to the water may present some mugginess in hotter temperatures, Fieldston has enough opportunities to get some natural shade, that it’s not hard to stay cool. Most of the businesses in the area remain around the outside edge, so if you’re looking to explore a little green hideaway, the inner streets of Fieldston is an ideal place to do it.

The hills in Fieldston can certainly make for an interesting stroll, especially through the center of the neighborhood. While most of them go up and down and around the residential streets, you could find yourself in for a little bit of a hustle at times, though nothing particularly treacherous or demanding. Fieldston is a good middle ground for those looking for something less urban while not exactly expecting a hiking trail. Though the neighborhood has plenty of residential space, so be cautious when venturing away from the main streets, as you may end up on someone’s property by accident. Traffic should be relatively quiet, unless you wander towards the southeastern end where most of the business centers are congregated. These spaces may require you to keep an eye on the street signs. Otherwise, be prepared for a fairly easy going walk.

While most of Fieldston is green, the area has surprisingly little space when it comes to parks. The only noticeable park in the neighborhood is Brust Park which is directly to the west of the Manhattan College campus. While the park is small, it offers both a playground and a few casual walking trails, though there is no dog-specific area so keeping your pup on leash is essential. If you’re looking for a much larger area to wander, the nearby Van Cortlandt Park can be your alternative. Van Cortlandt offers recreational areas, walking trails, educational areas, and even three different dog runs. You have your pick of the litter if you decide to go outside the boundaries of Fieldston. However, the neighborhood itself is still a lovely area in general and you may be satisfied with what it offers without having to go too far.
