"What a Great Place to Be"

If you really want to see a lovely section of the Bronx, other than the Botanical Gardens or the Bronx Zoo, you need to go to a little stretch of road that goes between Laconia Avenue and Schieffelin Avenue.

This location is beautiful. East 229th Dr. N., surrounds the area, but the buildings are really great looking, there is a school here, and there is much greenery.

It is a must see for anyone traveling to this part of town.

"East 229th Street"

While there are plenty of business, churches, and restaurants, this street has constant traffic, there isn’t constant fun. I think that this would be a nice street to live on, though it seems that there are a lot of run down places on this block without a lot of wherewithall to fix anything up. I wasn’t impressed with the upkeep of the street, but I like the area.

"East 229th Street"

Beyond a few daycare centers and other small locally owned and operated businesses, this street wasn’t really all that interesting. I wasn’t impressed with the upkeep, but I was impressed by some of the delightful people I met who ran the shops and stores on this street.
