"Plenty of Schools and Hospitals"

If you have kids, you will be able to handle this area, because there are many schools in the area. Plus, with a couple of hospitals around, if your child got hurt, you and your child would be protected or cared for.
Pros
  • Space for cars to park
  • Plenty of schools for kids
  • Good hospitals in the area
Cons
  • Too busy at times
  • Lots of kids in area during school times

"Visit the Bronx Zoo"

The best part of E. 183rd St is at the corner of Southern Blvd. This is where the Bronx Zoo is located. Although I agree the Zoo is very attractive for tourist, it can get very busy at certain times of the year. The street can get crowded with cars. If you are patient, you can find your way through the area.

The rest of E. 183rd Street has a combination of stores and residential areas. Some people love it while there are those who hate it. Go there and see for yourself and make your own judgment call.
Pros
  • Mixed bag
  • Famous landmarks
Cons
  • Little too dirty in spots
  • Too many people at times
  • Too loud of noise

"On East 183rd Street"

This short street in the Bronx wasn’t really all that impressive. It was mainly residential and the residences weren’t all that great to look at. All in all, it was an average street on an average block. For more convenience, I suggest that you try something nearby. There always seemed to be people on the street and places to go. I wish there were more parks in the East Bronx, however.

"I promised myself, "If I live through the night, I will never set foot or tire on this street again""

I don’t know, maybe it was the rats as big as Maine Coon Cats, or the drug dealers hanging out on the street corners the prostitutes weren’t on, or perhaps I am just not cut out for city life, but for whatever reason, this street scared me. I had the unfortunate experience of being there at dusk, which is not the time for people who don’t live there to be there. I made myself a promise that if I lived through the night, or just long enough to reach a safer place, I would never purposely return there. Not a place for children, teens or vulnerable folks.
