"Spuyten Duyvil is Southern part of Riverdale!"

- DebbyReagan
Not sure why Spuyten Duyvil has its its own category because Spuyten Duyvil is part of Riverdale. I just posted the following in the Riverdale ratings so it is appropriate to post here as well: The N...

"Pretty houses and nice Italian restaurants"

- NYCinvest
Schuylerville has one of the most expensive houses in the Bronx after Riverdale. But living there is worth it. Quiet, safe, nice schools, parks, old but pretty homes, highway access and not too far fr...

"Best Town In the Bronx!"

Honestly, there is no better place in the Bronx, and very few in all of the five boroughs, that can measure up to Morris Park. Morris Park has consistently ranked number one by the city as the cleanes...

"The Nicest Neighborhood in the Bronx"

- ShannonLGilstad
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...

"Galway in the Bronx"

- ShannonLGilstad
First, nobody calls this area "Woodlawn Heights", which is just a real estate tactic; it's simply known as Woodlawn, and this sometimes includes the area on the other side of the Bronx border in Yonke...

"One of the best neighborhoods in NYC"

- JacquelineM
I am surprised Throggs Neck is not rated higher on this list. It is extremely safe, quiet, and a great place to raise children. Even with all of these plusses, it is also very affordable, especially w...

"A Truly Working-Class Oasis"

"West of the major Deegan is the best! Little NYC secret"

- ArchieAndrews
Kingsbridge is huge. So, I cant tell you much about east of the Major Deegan. Frankly I think it's a completely different neighborhood when one croses a major interstate highway. However, west of the...

Fordham

Ranked 13th best neighborhood in The Bronx

"Quiet, urban-style Bronx neighborhood"

- GrandStGlitter
This neighborhood is a relatively peaceful one – it’s not the type of place that a twenty-something seeking a bar and nightlife sort of neighborhood would be happy, however. It’s more ideal for famil...

This neighborhood isn’t exactly a spot for prime real estate, and it’s South Bronx location makes it unlike to be a candidate for prime real estate any time soon. This is a low income sort of neighbor...

"Quality Living in the Bronx"

As you near this neighborhood you are also about to leave the city – it’s pretty far from the nightlife and the action on Wall Street. It’s a suitable enough seeming neighborhood, though, for those wh...
