Much of Kingsbridge wins no beauty contests, stocked as it is with tire shops and aboveground train tracks. But looks aside, “[it’s] a diverse, well-established idea that has room for growth,” says broker Sasha Catus. It already has a lively retail corridor along Broadway, with pleasant pubs and a surprising stock of amenities. (WalkScore.com, a website that rates neighborhoods for livability based on how reachable services and amenities are on foot, rated it 88 out of 100, comparable to Astoria.) “It’s a good value,” agrees Anthony DeVivio, director of sales at Halstead Property’s Riverdale and Upper Manhattan branches. According to StreetEasy.com, the median price of active listings here now stands at $169,950; Riverdale, just up the hill, is at $299,000. (Prices tend to be softer east of the Major Deegan.) Three years ago, Kingsbridge accounted for just 1 percent of Halstead Riverdale’s transactions; that number is now 10 percent. Co-ops and rentals dominate, though there are plenty of one- and two-family houses and, lately, new condominiums. In development: an enormous BJ’s Wholesale Club. Rumored to be next: Trader Joe’s.
