"Quiet street in a big city"

Arlington Ave. is a short and quiet street in the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx.

I lived nearby for 2 years and often walked down Arlington Ave.

It is fully residential, with many trees. Graffiti is a problem from local teenagers--and being in Riverdale, car theft occurs from time to time. But overall it is safe and extremely family oriented.

Arlington Ave. is close to 235th Street and Riverdale Ave. which contain grocery stores, banks, cleaners\tailors\shoe repairmen, hardware stores, etc. Also, it is within walking distance to the NYC subway (1 train) and Metro North which goes directly to grand central. It is the ideal location for someone who wants to live in the city\have all of the city amenities but feel like you are living in a suburb with trees!

One disadvantage of this street is that there are two Henry Hudson Pkway entrances\exits neaby. Arlington Ave. ends up getting a lot of traffic b/c of this.
