Spuyten Duyvil (South Riverdale)

Spuyten Duyvil (pron.: /ˈsptən ˈdvəl/) is the name of a subsection of the Riverdale section of the Bronx in New York City. It currently refers to the southernmost section of Riverdale, below West 232nd Street, or below 239th Street by some definitions.

The area is named after Spuyten Duyvil Creek, where "Spuyten Duyvil" literally means "Devil's Spout" or Spuitende Duivel in Dutch; a reference to the strong and wild tidal currents found at that location. It may also be translated as "Spewing Devil", "Spinning Devil", "Devil's Whirlpool" or "Devil's Spate". Spui and spuit are still today commonly used Dutch words involving outlets for water.

Spuyten Duyvil neighborhood is home to The Henry Hudson Memorial Park and the Henry Hudson Bridge, which connects it to the island of Manhattan. It is also the location of the Spuyten Duyvil train station, which is served by the Hudson Line of the Metro-North Railroad.
