The North Bronx is a neighborhood region in the Bronx, New York. The term is of little utility other than as a contrast to the South Bronx. Even so, it is sometimes criticized as an artificial region considering the great variation in its neighborhoods, both socioeconomically as well as geographically. Socioeconomically, the Riverdale neighborhood is middle to upper-middle class and the neighboring Kingsbridge Heights is also middle class. Geographically, the North Bronx includes areas which are hilly and urban (much like Washington Heights, in Upper Manhattan) as well as areas which are coastal and suburban/residential (much like Queens.)
