"This is Not Even a Neighhborhood"

The neighborhood this refers to is questionably Highbridge/Concourse. This area has cleaned up after the new Yankee Stadium opened and is receiving a lot of high right now. I lived a few blocks away and can tell you that a lot of it is indeed HYPE. I would not want to raise my family here.
Pros
  • Decent park space
  • Yankee Stadium, if you can afford it
  • Godo transporation
Cons
  • Very noisy
  • Many neighbors are messy and litter
  • Lots of people "hanging out" aimlessly

"Hasn't been much going on here, upkeep questionable"

There is a park her that has been closed for a few years, as the city went to work building the new Yankees Stadium across from the old one. Obviously, the Macombs Dam Park borders on the baseball stadium, near the Harlem River and the Macombs Dam Bidge. There were plenty of sports fields on the lot, even if they weren’t really kept very well maintained. The park featured basketball courts, football and soccer fields, and baseball and softball diamonds. It was understandably undermanaged, since it was used as extra parking during Yankees games – apparently the city saw no need for the constant upkeep of a park slash parking lot.
