"Monroe College is the Biggest Attraction"

The one big attraction to East 190th Street is Monroe College. It is huge and you will find the area fully occupied with kids as they come and go during the day and weekend.

There is plenty to do on and off campus to delight college students and even adults can get in on the fun.
Pros
  • Very nice looking area
  • Gather places for people
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer
  • Lots of kids in area during school times

"East 190th Street"

Seton Avenue isn’t much of anything. The nearby park is nice, but not really worth the trip. You won’t find much in the way of anything on this South Bronx street. Though it wasn’t really a sight for sore eyes, this street was calm and nicely populated, and I didn’t feel that I could make a home here, though there isn’t much in the way of food and exciting things to do. You’ll have to go to the next street for that.
