"The Nicest Neighborhood in the Bronx"

This is a short bus or car ride from where I live, Bedford Park, and you can actually see some of the taller buildings in the distance, but what a different. This is a complete 180 from the bustle and skyscrapers of Manhattan. People who live here mainly send their children to private schools. There are literally mansions here and most homes are well over $1 million.
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Beautiful
Cons
  • Lack of public transportation
  • Prohibitively expensive

"Looks like a neighborhood in the woods"

This neighborhood is a bit breathtaking in spots, with its canopy of trees and streets that are carved into the hills, leaving houses to sit on raised properties. The neighborhood is home of its share of prestigious private schools, but other than the rich kids who’ve been carted off to them, the neighborhood is highly residential. This isn’t the sort of New York City style neighborhood that one would picture after seeing hundreds of movies that feature the city – it looks more like a neighborhood in the red hills of Florida or southern Georgia, at least during warmer months.
