This area of 3.4 square miles covers the neighborhoods of Spuyten Duyvil, Kingsbridge, Kingsbridge Heights, Fieldston, Riverdale, Marble Hill and Van Cortlandt Village.

Our District has various types of housing including cooperative apartments, condominium units, one family houses, 2-4 family houses and multi-family apartment buildings. Board 8 has two New York City Housing Authority Developments: Marble Hill & Fort Independence Houses.
