"Quiet street in a decent North BX nabe."

Completely residential street with a mix of private houses and apartment buildings. The Bx#3 bus runs along Ft Idenpendence and it's a quick ride to the Major Deegan Expressway. Broadway is about a 10 min walk away and there you'll find the #1 train, supermarkets, a pharmacy, banks and the Riverdale Diner on the corner of 238th St. Still a nice area, close to Van Cortlandt Park and the smaller, but closer, Ft Idependence Park (nicknamed Pigeon Park by the locals because of all the birds that flock there) which borders the Jerome Park Reservoir. There are schools nearby and most people in the area are working class with kids. All in all not a bad street.
