If you're comfortable riding in the city on any and all streets, your route works. It looks like you are, since you've chosen to head up Amsterdam Ave. and then across on Fordham Road. (Many people are not, so I don't assume.) In that case, all routes that don't go underwater or on Interstate Highways are fair game and yours clearly gets you where you want to go.

Also, consider (or share with us) what your goals for the trip are. My first instinct was to see if you're following the East Coast Greenway route. It's easy to check with RWG by switching the map to OSM Cycle. The ECG (and all other greenways) are clearly highlighted so its a quick comparison to make. I see there are a few spots where you go different than the ECG, which is designed to be a scenic and bike friendly as possible. Take a look at New Rochelle where the ECG markings indicate you might be routed against a one-way street.
