"I Lived Here Years Ago"

When people think about Bedford Park, this is probably what they are imaging: tree-lined streets, a mixture of art deco buildings, private, and multi-family dwellings. I will say that the quality has gone down hill in th epast 5 or 10 years. There used to be even more private houses. One old house with a wrap-around porch was knocked down in favor of a multi-story row of "Fedder" homes and another, which was going to be demolished for a project, now sits abandoned.
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Friendly
  • Beautiful looking area
Cons
  • Too many smaller houses being sold to developers who build structures that do not jibe with the low-density area.
  • Not as nice as it used to be.

"Nice Looking Street - Sections of Green"

Goes from Grand Concourse to Webster Avenue. Most of the street has a few trees that hang over the edge of the street. It gives it a nice look and pleasant. When you get close to Grand Concourse, you begin running into stores.

Altogether, the street is not bad to travel on and to live there isn't that bad either.
Pros
  • Beautiful looking area
  • plenty of stores
  • Get plenty of exercise walking in park
Cons
  • Too many cars around
  • Too many people at times

"East 201st Street"

Though there is not much in the way of food on this street, there are a lot on the main streets in this area. In terms of housing, this may not be the best place to live but it is very easily accessible as there are plenty of trains to take you to midtown Manhattan.
