"Very Commercial and some Places Are Dirty"

The one thing you may like about this area is that it is very commercialized. There are blocks upon blocks of commercial establishments. You can take your pick of what you like to do since there are many different stores, delis, etc., to look at and go into.

The downside to this place is that some sections of this street are dirty, while construction is going on in other parts of the street.

"Very Nice Neighborhood - Great for Kids"

If you have children, you will like this area, for there are a few schools along this street. This means there are plenty of kids for your children to play with.

The housing is not too bad either. If you are looking for a great shopping experience, you won't find it on the street, but if you go down Broadway, you will find plenty of places to go to.
Pros
  • A lot of places to park your car
  • Plenty of openness to move around
  • Plenty of schools around

"The Most Famous Museum in NYC - MNH"

If you are wondering what MNH means, it refers to the American Museum of Natural History. Every body flocks there to see that place. If you are a history buff, you will like what you see here.

The biggest problem is getting to it, especially by car. Traveling by car is not going to work. There are too many cars in Manhattan as it is. Your best bet is to come into the city by bus or path train to Broadway and 34th St. Then take an uptown bus to 81st St. Then take a M79 bus to the museum.

"Very Classy But Busy Area"

When I went through this area, the one thing I noticed was the number of businesses I found. I found a different business on every block. There are delis, small stores, restaurants, diners, and many other kinds of commercial facilities. There are also residential buildings in the area as well.

This street has a lot to offer anyone.

"You Want Commercial - You've Got It"

Most of W. 79th Street is made up of commercial facilities. But there are residential facilities here and there. The biggest attraction though, is the American Museum of Natural History.

People, no matter where they came from, ended up at the museum. You would not believe the traffic that day I drove down the street. At least there was a nice restaurant on the street near Broadway I could go to since I was hungry.

"Schools and Museum - A Great Choice"

If you travel down W. 78th Street, you may be happy to see what comes up at the end. The biggest attraction for anyone to see is the American Museum of Natural History. Although, you can gain access to it from W. 77th Street as well, the place covers a few blocks, so you can also end up reaching it at the end of W. 78th Street.

If you go in the opposite direction, you will run into school systems, particularly Collegiate School.

"American Museum of Natural History"

The greatest and most often visited sport on W. 77th Street is the American Museum of Natural History. Everybody goes to this museum. Why not. It has a lot of history.

It is hard to park around the area. You may have to seek out a parking garage. But I'll tell you, with what you will find at the American Museum of Natural History, whatever you have to do to get there, will be worth it.

"A Classy and Upscale Neighborhood in Manhattan"

If you like the idea of living in an upscale and classy neighborhood, you will like the UWS. It has a lot to offer anyone. Stores, shopping centers, theaters. You name it, you will find it in this area.

Also, Riverside Park is a nice diversion to the stress of the city. Definitely a place worth checking out.

"A Rather Nice Neighborhood"

If you like nice neighborhoods, you'll like W. 76th Street. It has a lot of greenery and nice clean streets. It also has some commercial establishments. It really is a nice neighborhood to walk in. You can experience seeing so many things. The big attraction I think is the NY State Historical Society at the end of W. 74th Street and Central Park West. It has a lot to offer anyone, who likes to learn a lot of NYC history.

"Very Busy and Totally Commercial"

What can I tell you. If you don't mind busy people coming and going, you won't mind being here. There really is a lot to offer. Many stores to choose from. There are even theaters to go to. I think it is a great place, especially if you are a tourist.

The downside is there are a whole lot of tourist around and people in general. Plus, it is hard to park since so many come here in their cars.

"Very Commercial and Very Busy Area"

Some sections of W. 74th Street has apartments for residents. But many blocks have commercial establishments. Also, some blocks are decent to walk, while other blocks are not that great. I think it is up to the beholder to decide what he likes and doesn't like about the place.

Plus, when I approach people along the way, they snubbed me and kept on going. To me, the place is too busy, but that is the way I see it.

"A School Zone With Apartments Thrown In"

"Park The Best Part"

If you drive up W. 143rd Street, you will find something rather unique about the street. Despite a bunch of apartment buildings lining the streets, the most sought after area on the street is what lies between Harlem River Drive and Malcolm X Blvd.

At this location is a huge park. During the summer many people hang out here. If you have kids, they will love to be there. In fact, you may find your kids there playing baseball or basketball.

"Schools and More Schools and the Park"

If you have kids and are looking for schools to place them in, you will find a lot of schools on W. 141st St. Nearly every block there is a school.

You will also see many apartment buildings in the area. W. 141st Street goes a long way. It is not a shortcut to another street. It goes a ways. But the highlight of the street is when it goes by the Hamilton Granger National Memorial. That alone is worth driving on the street.

"Schools, Commerce, Residents, and Industry - Together On One Street"

If you like a mixed bag, you will be glad to go to W. 142nd St. It has a little bit of everything. You will find apartment buildings lined up one after another on certain blocks. You will find grocery stores and other commercial establishments at street corners, and you will also find a few industrial buildings along the way.

I can't forsake the schools. There are a couple of schools located on the street, especially where the street ends near Bradhurst Avenue and 5th Avenue.

"A Park, Apartment Buildings, and Schools - What a Treat"

If you ever come to the west side of the Bronx, especially near the Hamilton Heights, and you are driving, come up to W. 140th Street. You will find it something else.

Much of the street has a ton of apartment buildings. In fact, they line the street for a few blocks. But you will also discover something else as well. There are a lot of schools on the street. nearly every block contains a school.

And there are some commercial establishments as well.

But a big part of the street, well not exactly a big part because it isn't on the street itself, but connects to it, is the Hamilton Grange National Memorial. It is breath-taking.

I would definitely recommend it to others, especially to families with children.

"A Weird Street by the Way It is Designed"

W. 172nd Street appears on the map to go a distance, but in reality, it goes from Nelson Avenue to Jessup Avenue. And that is where it ends. Most of W. 172nd Street is made up of schools and a few large buildings. From seeing them as I drove by, they appeared to be a some commercial building. Looked to small to be industrial.

Also, there were a number of schools in the area, which may be an attraction for kids. People looking to retire may find the place alluring, especially since there really isn't much to do.

"Just a Side Street"

W. 171st Street is simply a cross street that allows someone to get from Ogden Avenue to Merriam Avenue, which leads to University Avenue or Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.

There is nothing going on this street. Everything that is on it has an entrance on another street, so all you see is the back of buildings.

The only good thing about it, is that cars can park on the street.

"Commercial, Commercial, and more Commercial"

Everywhere you drive on W. 170th Street, the most of what you run into are commercial establishments. This means you will find delis, fast food places, and other convenience stores. There is housing around the area, but not as much as you would find on other streets. West 170th Street is more of a commercial zone than residential.

I also remember spotting a school zone along the way. So kids may like the area for that purpose.

"Schools, Schools, and More Schools"

If you have kids of school age, you will like living on W. 169th Street. Although a few spots are not exactly to be desired, still there are sections of the street that is nice looking.

But what makes this area attractive to parents is there are at least three or four schools along the route. And there are schools on side streets, so there are plenty of school locations for your kids to go to.

There are also apartment buildings for you to move into. I would say that if you are a parent or someone who is retired, you may just like the area.
Pros
  • Lots of schools for kids
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer

"Commercial and School Zone - Not Much Else"

W. 168th Street only goes a few blocks. And those few blocks are made up of commercial establishments and schools.

The place does tend to get busy with people, especially when school is in session.

It has its ups and downs. If you don't mind the ugliness in sections, and you do have kids, you may be willing to move to this street.

Also, tourists may like the area because of the stores around.

  • Lots of schools for kids

"A Horrible Looking Street"

This is a horrible looking street. Some sections don't look too bad, but many sections look rundown and decrepit. Some buildings look like they are about to fall down. There is graffiti in many spots.

This is one area I would not recommend anyone to live at, even if there are a number of apartment buildings in the area.
Pros
  • Space for cars to park
Cons
  • Horrible looking street
  • Very dirty

"Quite a Road - More Like a Highway"

If you ever drove down Fulton Avenue, you may just experience something different. Instead of driving down a road, it feels like you are driving down a highway. The main reason why is the 4 lanes. It is a well-traveled road and is made up primarily of commercial establishments, however, there are some residential buildings mixed in.

It is definitely a busy area to say the least, especially during the day light hours of 3-6pm.
Pros
  • Plenty of stores
Cons
  • Too busy at times

"What A Beauty Area to Be"

I will tell you this. I used to live there, and I can't believe how beautiful looking the road is. It is a road that is divided by a median. This median is full of nothing but grass and trees. Even on the side of the road on each side, you are welcomed by trees, bushes, and grass. You will run into stores along the way. In fact, at one section, there is a mall.

But overall, a very nice place to drive around and enjoy nature and the beauty of it all. Be careful though. Make sure you are the passenger so you won't crash into anything while looking around.

"Commercialized and a Two Lane Road"

Once you get into Hempstead, Nassau Blvd turns from a 4 lane road, into a 2 lane road. And it isn't any longer a lot of greenery. Now it consists of stores, one after the other. No matter what store you are looking for, you will find it here.

It is definitely a far cry from the nicer looking Nassau Blvd in Garden City, but that is the way the local city takes care of it. So, if you love shopping and eating, and don't mind the traffic, you just may find Nassau Blvd a good way to get to where you are going.

"Well Traveled Road in Garden City"

Nassau Blvd covers more than just Garden City. The area also goes into Hempstead. But for now I will review Nassau Blvd in Garden City.

Despite the fact it is a well-traveled road, it is beautifully kept. The blvd actually is four lanes but divides in the center by an island that is mostly grass, but with some trees along the way.

It is really a nice road to travel on. There are not that many homes on the blvd, although there are some. There are some stores in spots. Overall, it would give it a thumbs up for a great road to travel on.

"Another Great Place to Live At with Greenery Around"

What can I say about 3rd Avenue. It is nearly identical to 1st and 2nd Avenues, with the exception that it curves around at a certain point and ends as a loop-around.

The area that is pretty greenery is the area just before 3rd Avenue bends around and loops-around. The rest of the avenue is made up of houses, and a few bushes and trees. A typical neighborhood on Long Island.
Pros
  • Beautiful looking area

  • Ends in a loop-around instead of being a through street

"Another Great Street to Live On"

Second Avenue is just like 1st Avenue, by the way they look. They are almost carbon copies of each other. So my best bet is if you like 1st Avenue, you will like 2nd Avenue. The only difference between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue is that 2nd Avenue does not have a stop and a dead end to it. Instead, it has a loop-around at the end of the avenue.

"Very Nice and Pleasant Neighborhood"

One of the best looking neighborhoods to live in is at 1st Avenue. I drove down the street a while back and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. Many of the buildings are new and kept well.

At one point, 1st Avenue stops and becomes a dead end. Otherwise, it is a great street to live on.

"Dutch Broadway Park - Outstanding"

If you love parks, you need to come to the Dutch Broadway Park. You will find it between 238th Street and Elmont Road.

If you like a mixture of stores with homes thrown in, you will like Linden Blvd. There basically is a mixed bag of goodies you will find along this boulevard.

Of all the places where I would love to move to, it would be 115th Avenue in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. It is a two lane road, but it is nice and clean and the buildings you see along the way are also clean looking.

"Under Construction"

W. 261st Street normally goes from Broadway to River Rd. However the street is undergoing construction at the corner of Palisade Avenue and West 261st Street. There are barricades there.

Other than this little dump, the street is not all that bad. It turns into a typical suburban neighborhood.
Pros
  • Nice street to travel on up to a point.

"Typical Suburban Street"

W. 260th Street looks like your typical suburban street. There is your typical school zone. The best part of the street is when it ends at Broadway, because directly across the street is a large park. How delightful it is to see it and to go into it.

If you don't like the neighborhood because of so many schools, you will love the park. The next time you visit the area, don't forget to stop and see the huge park at Broadway.
Pros
  • Beautiful looking area
  • Nice looking park
  • Get plenty of exercise walking in park
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer

"Schools, Stores, a Large Park, and a Whole Lot More"

W. 259th Street has it all. You will find stores in one area, a bunch of schools in another, and a large park at the end of the street that connects to Broadway.

To me, W. 259th Street has a busy side to it. One side is quiet, while one side is noisy with people coming and going. Kids are seen everywhere.

There are mainly single-family homes along with street. However, there are a few apartment buildings near the schools.
Pros
  • Plenty of stores
  • Nice looking park

  • Too many people at times

"A lot Going On"

This is a very short street, about half a block or so, but it holds the Bronx Community Boards.

There really is nothing else on this street, but one large building.

You will find more action on Riverdale Avenue.

"The School Zone"

When you travel down this street, the one thing you will notice is it has a lot of schools around. Nearly every block there is a school. So you parents, if you are looking to relocate in the upper part of the Bronx, here may be a good place to go, since there are a lot of schools around.

"From Schools to the Woods to Bus Training"

W. 254th Street has it all. On one end there is a school area. This is around Riverdale Avenue. Then you go for a while through what looks like a country setting. Once you get past this area you run into an academy for school buses.

There isn't that much regarding residential living, at least not from what I saw. But if you want you can visit the place, or stay for a short time. If you can find a nice place to live in the area, the Riverdale School system is considered very good.

"Commercial and Residential Thrown Together"

There is really nothing much to this street. It covers two blocks. Most of what is on one block are mainly small business establishments. The rest are apartment buildings.

There really is not much else to see. I would not recommend this area as it is mostly commercial.

On the other hand, if you really are looking for excitement and a place to relax, you might want to go across the street on Broadway. This is were W. 251st Street ends. On the other side of Broadway is Old Putnam Trail. It also has a large baseball field. So you might want to check it out.

"A Country Road in the Bronx"

If you have ever lived in the south, this road reminds me of one. It goes a ways, and has twists and turns. Plus there is a lot of greenery. There are some buildings along the way that people live in, but I don't recall seeing any commercial property on this street, nor did I see any school or hospital.

To me, it just seems like your typical country road that takes you from one street to another. But, if you like walking around and enjoying the view, and have friends in the area, you may like to visit here.

"Narrow Road Filled With Greenery"

W. 250th Street goes a long way, about a mile, but much of it is narrow (only one car and go through at a time), and there is a lot of trees and shrubbery around. There are some properties along the road, but they are scattered about.

I do not see anyone relocating here, considering there really are no places to move into, but if you like walking along and enjoying the greenery, it isn't all that bad.

"A Little Street with a Lot of Green"

W. 249th St reminds me of a little side street in the hills in the south. It has a lot of green around. it's mainly as a back road from Henry Hudson Pkwy to Wave Hill.

In case you may not be aware of it, Wave Hill also houses one of the biggest Jewish colleges in NY. The place is Yeshiva of Telshe Alumni.

If you are interested in a safe place, this is the area to be. A very nice area. Not much in the way of housing, but a nice place to visit.

"Talking About Small Country Road"

This street reminds me of a small country road back in the mountains. It is built mainly for one car, but two can fit, but just barely. There are buildings along the way for people to stop at. I'm not sure if these places are residential, commercial, or just part of Manhattan College.

You can travel down the small stretch of road. But be careful. There is also a lot of trees and shrubbery. So it may block your view from time to time. And with people coming out of parking spaces, it may prove to be a possible accident waiting to happen.

"Horace Mann School Tips the Scale For This Street"

The most often visited and most sought after location on W. 246th Street is the Horace Mann School at the end near Post Rd. This area is crowded when college semesters are engaged. As such it gets busy with students walking around and cars going back and forth. Other than during those times, the rest of the time is pretty quiet.

"Country without the Country"

Did you ever travel down a country road one time? if so, did you notice how much greenery was around. Trees would line up the streets. That is what this street does. It is so wonderful to be there. I would recommend anyone, no matter whether you have kids or not.

With the college right down the street, your kids would fit right in, especially when they get the college age.

"Nice and Greenery"

The main thing I have to say about East 237th Street is that is it nice looking and with plenty of trees around. In fact, there is a short park at the end. This park is connected to Van Courtland Park E.

Whether you have kids or not, you will love this area. It is so pleasant and nice looking. There are no schools on this block, which is it's downside, but as far as looks are concern, it beats most streets in the Bronx.

Check it out when you are in the area.

"Clean, Colorful, and Green"

E. 236th Street only covers a few blocks but from what I observed traveling down it one day is that it is mainly clean with some home built around different colors. This makes the neighborhood colorful to a degree. And what really struck my fancy was all the greenery around. Very nice, especially in the fall weather.

It is definitely place to visit and live here if you like a lot of greenery. There's no schools on the block, so the kids may have to find one a few blocks away. This is why I am not recommending the area to kids for that purpose.

"Beauitful Location"

E. 235th Street enters into Woodlawn Heights. This section of the street is absolutely breath-taking. There are so many trees in the area. The people who live here have taken care of their own property, and the local government has taken steps to keep the streets clean as well.

"Very Interesting Street - Nice But Busy"

Some sections of E. 234th Street appear to hold a few stores. There are also many apartment buildings that appear to have been built recently, because they look new.

"Commercial Area - Seton Falls Park"

Most of E. 233rd Street is a commercial zone. It is also a four lane highway. This means two lanes on each side. The best part of E. 233rd Street that is not commercialized is Seton Falls Park.

"Nice Location - Easily Accessible"

"The Best Place is the Bronx Guest House"

if there is one place i believe is the best looking location on E. 213st Street, and that is the Bronx Guest House near Bronxwood Avenue. It is gorgeous looking. The architecture is superb.

If I were traveling in this area, I would take a camera along with me so I could take pictures.

"A Developing Area - But Nice Location"

When you travel down E. 230th Street, you will find it has a nice location in some spots. There are sections that appear to be developing, as the streets are messed up a little, but otherwise, it doesn't look to bad. I really did not see any schools on this street. Kids may have to attend a school around the block or on another street nearby.

There are some stores at street corners. Overall, not a bad place to live. You just have to choose your spots.

"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.

"Developing Area"

This street appears to be developing. There are sections that appear to be under construction, while the other areas look nice. There are trees planted in various spots along the way. A few buildings look old, but a number of them look new, especially the single family homes.

I do not remember seeing any schools or a day care center.

If you are retired or single, you may like living here.

"Not Bad - Could Do With a Face Lift"

E. 227th Street is not all that long. It does cover many blocks but is shorter than some surrounding streets.

Based on what I saw when traveling on it is that there are some areas that have plenty of trees. I liked that. But there were also sections that were not perfectly clean. It looked rugged. I did not see any schools, but there are some stores, especially at street corners.

Not a bad place for retirees and single people.

"School Happy Zone"

If you have kids, this is the street to live on. There are about two or three schools along the entire route of East 226th Street. Not only that, but the homes are pretty nicely built. There are some old buildings, and a little graffiti in places, but there is also a lot of greenery as well.
Pros
  • Lots of schools for kids

"Great Place to Live"

The buildings have a nice look to them. They do not appear to be too old.

Overall, it looks like a nicely developed place to live.

"Nice Looking Street - Well Cared For"

Nearly the entire stretch of E. 224th Street is nice. The buildings do not appear to be to old. There are many individual homes along the way. It appears to be a nice developing area. Having kids would not be a problem, as day care is nearby.

I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to relocate to the other.

"A Great Place To Live and Work"

E. 223rd Street represents a nice area to live and work at. It appears to be quiet in sections. The streets are wide but only one lane for each side. The buildings are well designed and look really good. I believe this neighborhood was listed on the Bronx County Renovation Project, but I am not sure.

Bring your kids and yourself to. Enjoy a nice area where people will treat you nicely.

"An Unusual Street For the Bronx"

East 222nd Street is not the usual street you will find in the Bronx. It is not a typical two lane street. Instead, just about the entire length of E. 222nd Street is a four lane street. This means each side has two lanes.

And the area is pretty nice looking as well. There are a number of apartment buildings, but since we are getting closer to the end of the Bronx, you will find a lot more single homes on streets instead of apartment buildings.
Pros
  • Four lane road so plenty of space
  • Very nice looking area
Cons
  • Too many cars on the street at times
  • Can be dangerous to cross during rush hour

"Very Classy Buildings and Some Greenery"

E. 221st Street has one interesting look to it. The buildings on most blocks have a rather classy look to them, unlike dirty and old looking apartment buildings look. You actually don't mind living in this area. I do not recall seeing a school nearby, but there are some speed bump signs in the area. I guess the citizens on this street have a lot of kids and don't want to see them hurt, so they had the city install speed bumps so slow the traffic down.

"Biggest attraction is Lavelle School for the Blind"

Of the entire stretch of E. 220th Street, the one particular landmark that stands out most of all is the Lavelle School for the Blind. They have helped thousands upon thousands of blind people cope in this world.

If you are a church goer, there are two types of churches one block from each other. So you have a couple variations to attend.

"A Very Nice Area For Kids Church Goers"

If you have kids who are pre-school, you will like living on E. 219th Street. This is because it houses St. Peter's Pre-School. There is also a great day care center down the street so parents can drop off their kids, if the kids are younger than pre-school.

Also, if you are a church goer, you will love the Haitian Congregation of Good. They were brought together to help the unfortunate in Haiti.

"Two Blocks are Fine - The Rest Can't See"

From Laconia Avenue to Brentwood Avenue, East 218th Street is a very nice looking area. I did not see any schools on this strip of land, but I did see a church or two. As for the rest of the way, I couldn't get to it because it was blocked.

Maybe when you visit the area, it won't be blocked so you can see what the entire area of E. 218th street looks like.

"Four Short But Nice Looking Blocks"

Much of E. 217th Street is a one-way street, so you will have to get to it from Gun Hill Road and come down. This way you can actually reach that section of E. 217th Street. It isn't too bad an area . Some sections are better looking but at least you get to see greenery, which is always a plus.

I don't recall seeing any schools, except for the Regent School on E. 213th St. However, since there is a school one block over, why not bring your kids and move on one of four blocks that make up East 217th St.
Pros
  • Not too bad looking in sections

A good portion of the street can be considered nice looking, with the exception of a couple of blocks. There is also a school along the way for the kids to go to.

There really isn't much in the way of nightlife until you get to Bronxwood Avenue or Gun Hill Road. There you will see a lot of stores, restaurants, and what have you.

"Nice Looking Homes and Apartment Buildings on Street"

I am giving this place a nice rating. I've been on this street, and must say a lot of the buildings look new. At least much of the long stretch of street does not appear to be dirty. The road could stand to be re-paved, as there are patches here and there, as well as pot holes. Otherwise not a bad place to live at. There is also a school on one block so you will find plenty of kids around.

"Very Short Two Blocks with Nothing Going On"

Most of the apartments you see when traveling down this street are entered on another street, so all you see is the back end of it. There is one building you can enter from the street. But most buildings are accessed from another way.

Since this is a two block street, it really doesn't offer anything to anyone except maybe a cross street from Perry Avenue to Parkside Place.
Pros
  • Space for cars to park
Cons
  • Nothing going on
  • Short street

"Twisted Streets and Some Greenery"

E. 208th Street is nothing else but a long three blocks with some greenery on it. Much of the area is clean. And there is a school near the end of it close to Mosholu Pkwy. Otherwise, not much else to report about it. A typical long street that has a beginning and an end.

"This Street Can Be Called The School Zone"

Unlike the other streets I had already reviewed, this one has many schools. I mean it has many schools. Nearly one on every block. It is indeed a place for kids, since so many kids are in this neighborhood. However, despite the number of schools there, be careful, people have been attacked on this street and nearby streets in the recent past.
Pros
  • Lots of schools for kids
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer
  • Too many people at times
  • Can be unsafe at times

"Typical Street in the Bronx"

One section of East 206th street has no public transportation is the block from Bainbridge Avenue to Perry Avenue. The rest of the way MTA buses travel on it.

East 206th Street is your typical street in the Bronx. It is dirty. Has disgusting people living there, and is simply not a great place for people to go to, if you value your life.
Pros
  • Short block
Cons
  • Little too dirty in spots

"Not Safe to Be There"

Hull Avenue may not be all that bad a street, but in reality, there is a gang that hangs around after a certain time and these gangs attack, especially after it gets dark, I know. I lived on Hull Avenue for nearly a year. I got so tired of the neighborhood noise and the threat of violence that I just decided to leave. And that I did.

"Street Splits at Grand Concourse"

I used to live in the area and when I went down 205th Street to reach La Cabana 2, and I was on the other side of the Grand Concourse. In other words, I was on the side that connected to the E. Mosholu Parkway. What an inconvenience. So in order to get to one side of East 205th Street to the other side, you have to jump barriers on the Grand Concourse, or go down so far on the Grand Concourse until you are allowed to turn left and then go across and then turn left to go back to East 205th St. Not a smart way to split a street.
Pros
  • Plenty of stores

"Weird Looking Street - Splits Into High and Low Level"

E. 204th Street is the strangest street, at least to me. When you go up E. 204th Street and you arrive Valentine Avenue, the road splits into a high and low level road. The high level goes to all local stops. The low level acts as a highway.

If you are new to the area, you might get confused by it.

"Very Short Street - Only Covers a Couple of Long Blocks"

I am giving this street an average rating because on one end there are a lot of trees that give the area a nice pleasant look and smell. But on the other end, the opposite is true. The area looks dirty.

If you like greenery, you will like the one end at Briggs Avenue.

"Nice Looking Street - Sections of Green"

Goes from Grand Concourse to Webster Avenue. Most of the street has a few trees that hang over the edge of the street. It gives it a nice look and pleasant. When you get close to Grand Concourse, you begin running into stores.

Altogether, the street is not bad to travel on and to live there isn't that bad either.

"Not a Bad Street to Live On"

Overall, East 199th Street is not a bad street to live on. It mainly contains apartment buildings, but it does have a couple of churches and some stores along the way. Although I did not see any schools on the street, I did see a school bus drop off kids, so there has to be a school nearby.

Based on what I have seen, this street is good for retired people who like to do community work at the local church, or for single people who like to get involved in church activities.

"Another Mixed Bag But Busier With Traffic"

E. 198th Street has a mixed bag of blocks One block contains some apartment buildings, while other blocks have a mixture of apartment buildings and small stores. This is basically how East 198th Street goes. The difference between this street and other streets is more traffic flow.

There is also one school along the way. At least that seems to be the only one I could find, unless there are others on side streets that connect to this street.

"Nothing Much To Look At"

The only thing going for E. 197th Street is there's a school at one end of the street. Otherwise, all you will find when going there are the back of apartment buildings. It appears to me to be like a cross street to get you from Decatur Avenue to Bainbridge Avenue. There is one small street that connects to it in the middle, but that is simply a one-way alley.

"Nothing But A Cross Street"

East 195th Street is really nothing but a long cross street to get you from Webster Avenue to Marion Avenue. When you travel up the street, all you will see are various types and sizes of apartment buildings. There are no stores, delis, churches, or schools. Strictly apartment buildings is all that lines this street.

If you are a senior and want to retire and be a recluse, this street is for you, but it is not recommended for anyone else, if you expect action on this street alone, unless you feel like walking a distance down to Webster and walk along that avenue. Then you will find what you are looking for.

"Curvy, Split, and Nice Looking"

E. 184th Street is quite unusual. Unlike most streets in the Bronx, E. 184th Street splits at Park Avenue. Despite this split, you can get to each section. You just have to maneuver around Park Avenue to get to the other side.

The bright spot on the side that ends at Arthur Avenue is St. Barnabas Hospital. This hospital is situated on a huge garden-like area. When you see the edge of the area, you would think it is a park.

There are a few schools in the area as well.

On the other side of Park Avenue where E. 184th Street continues till it meets Jerome Avenue, there is a section that is quite curvy. This section from Webster Avenue to Marion Avenue is quite curvy, so be careful driving there. Otherwise, much of the area is quite nice and clean.

"Dirty Area at Park Avenue"

Most of East 179th Street is made up of apartment buildings with a few stores along the way. But the area at Park Avenue is filthy and unsafe. Apparently they are doing construction work. Whatever it is, the area is not safe looking, dirty, and I would strongly suggest you stay away from there.

"Interesting Street to Travel On"

East 176th Street is an interesting street to travel on as it travels a long way, but is broken in spots. What is good about the street is there is a school and firehouse near the corner of East 176th Street and Park Avenue.

"Dirty On One Side - Clean On The Other"

East 175th Street actually has two parts. One part covers a few blocks from 3rd Avenue to Carter Avenue. This area the street is unpaved and the area is very dirty. There are a couple of manufacturing facilities in the area that make it bad looking. There are two schools as well.

For the second part, this covers Anthony Avenue to the Grand Concourse. This area is made up primarily of residential apartments. Not much else. The street only covers four short blocks. It does have a great day care center for mothers with kids.

"A Lot of Stores and Then Some"

The early part of E. 174th Street from Boston Road is mainly stores on both sides. It is a commercial district. Then once you get past Bryant Avenue, you get into the residential area. From Boone Avenue to Stratford Avenue you will cross over an overpass that looks like a long bridge. It is a two lane highway that takes you over Sheridan Expressway and Boston River Avenue.

It isn't really a bad looking area. More than half is residential, but even that area doesn't look half bad. The only area that looks bad is where the street meets Boston Rd and Southern Blvd.

"The Best Part of the Street is Crotona Park"

Of the entire E. 172nd Street, I would say the main area to focus on is Crotona Park. Much of E. 172nd Street is either under construction or there are a bunch of factories and other manufacturing facilities in the area. The does not allow for attractiveness.

But if you come to the end of E. 172nd Street to where it connects to Crotona Park, you have reached the best part of it. What a site to see. Just go in and enjoy the view. Crotona Park is huge. It covers a wide territory. There are lots of things to do and see. So why not bring your kids along.

"Highbridge Park the Best Choice to See"

W. 172nd Street goes from Haven Street to Highbridge Park.

W. 172nd Street resides in the Washington Heights section of the Bronx.

Much of W. 172nd Street is residential buildings, but there are a number of stores as well. But the most often seen part of W. 172nd Street is Highbridge Park.

For a while Highbridge Park was not much to look at. But with the help of the New York Restoration Project, which has been in place since 2000, the park has been going through a restoration process. The park has not been fully restored as there is still much work to do.

But there has been some improvements like the creation of bike paths. Also, in 2008, the Police Officer Michael J. Buczek Little League field opened.

"This Street Is Not An Ordinary Street"

When you travel on E. 169th Street, you will find it is not your usual ordinary street. The street travels in sections. One stretch goes pretty far than ends. The street picks up in a different location and runs for a few blocks and ends again. In other words it is not straight through like normal streets are.

You will find a mixed bag as you travel down each section. Some parts of the street are dirty. Some parts are clean. You will find it varies a lot. You will find schools, churches, and plenty of local stores along the way. You will find kids hanging out, especially where the schools are.

Altogether it isn't a bad area. Depending on your taste, you may like it or hate it.
Pros
  • Not a bad location if you don't mind a mixed bag
Cons
  • Too dirty in places

"Lots of Stores and Clean Neighborhoods"

The part of E. 167th Street between 3rd Avenue and Webster Avenue is mainly commercial buildings, factories, manufacturing facilities, and some residential buildings.

When you get to Webster Avenue, you are now in the commercial zone. All you see for a long stretch are stores, one after another. And this is found on both sides of the block. If you like shopping, you will like hanging around E. 167th Street between Webster Avenue and Teller Avenue.

After you get past Teller Avenue, the road widens around and becomes mainly a residential neighborhood. However, this area is really nice looking.
Pros
  • Plenty of stores
  • Plenty of things to do
Cons
  • Too many people around
  • Too many cars

"Not a Place to Live Unless You are a Hermit"

From Washington Avenue to 3rd Avenue there is a lot of construction going on. This makes the place dirty. But as for the rest of the street, it is a mixture of apartment buildings and factories. Some of the factories are bordered up. The area is also dirty. It is definitely not a place to bring up children.

  • A mixed bag

Nearly the entire street is loaded with torn down or vacated buildings. There is construction going on in many places on the street.

"Not Much to Look at For a Short Street"

Half of E. 164th Street has a vacant lot on one side and a few vacant buildings on the other. The street doesn't get better looking until Brook Avenue when it becomes a commercial zone. This is also where E. 164th Street ends.

I would not recommend it for anyone.
Pros
  • Some stores in area.
Cons
  • Street has too many vacant properties.
  • Street is very dirty in sections.

"A Mixed Bag is Found On This Street"

E. 163rd Street goes a long way in the Bronx. When it gets to Courtland Avenue, the street ends. It picks up again at 3rd Avenue.

Most of what is contained on E. 163rd Street are a bunch of schools and churches, along with residential buildings. There are some stretches of road where you will see some commercial establishments. There is also a power plant near Courtland Avenue.

This street had a mixed bag. It has some interesting spots, while other spots are least to be desired. It is a great place to retire as long as you plan on not going anywhere.

"An Average Street to Travel Down"

E. 162nd Street goes from Melrose Avenue to Sherman Avenue. After passing Courtland Avenue, there is a large park on one side of the street. A very beautiful park.

Keep in mind that E. 162nd Street is a one-way street. This means the street starts out at Sherman Avenue and goes til Melrose Avenue.

E. 162nd Street has a mixed bag from a few commercial places to mostly residential buildings. It is neither a decent place to live nor a bad place. It is according to taste.
Pros
  • A large park to go to
  • A mixed bag
Cons
  • One-way street
  • Not a good nor a bad street

"The Best Part is the Home of the New Yankees Stadium"

Much of E. 161st Street from Elton Avenue to 3rd Avenue has road construction on each side, so the place is not very clean. Between Park Avenue and Morris Avenue, the place is mostly commercial with a number of stores on each side. Once you are past Morris Avenue, the Concourse Plaza is on one side and a school on one the others.

The best part of the street is when you come up to the New Yankee Stadium. But before getting there, E. 161st Street comes together in the middle of the road and goes down like into a tunnel. Concourse Village West and East are on each side the E. 161st Street. This area is also very well commercialized.

"Not Much Going On"

E. 160th Street is shown in two places. One place is from Cauldwell Avenue to Westchester Avenue. The other place goes from Park Avenue to a branch of 3rd Avenue, but not 3rd Avenue itself.

Most of E. 160th Street is made up of apartment buildings and there is a lot of construction going on.

This is one area where i would not want to hang around. It would be great for seniors, who have nothing to do. But it is not great for kids or couples.

"A Nice Playground for Kids Makes the Street Beneficial"

At the corner of 3rd Avenue and E. 158th Street there is a semi-large playground. It appears to be a basketball court, but hard to tell as a tall fence surrounds the property. As you travel up E. 158th Street, you will just see apartment buildings.

As you travel down the street you will notice churches and more apartment buildings. One apartment building has a large park-like front yard.

"The Road to Yankee Stadium"

E. 153rd street comes in two parts. Part one goes from 3rd Avenue to Park Avenue. The second part begins at Walton Street and goes past Yankees Stadium to the Major Deegan Expressway.

The first part contains a church, a couple of schools, a number of apartment buildings, and a few stores.

The second part is not as pretty as the first part, but what makes this part so useful is that Yankee Stadium is not too far away. Before arriving at Yankees stadium, you will run into manufacturing facilities and a few apartment buildings. There are also trees planted along the sidewalks in some places that give the area a little greenery.

When you pass River Avenue you will find a couple of parking garages on one side of the road. Just keep going and you will connect to E. 157th Street, which will take you to Yankee Stadium.
Pros
  • Yankee Stadium

  • Dirty in many places

E. 148th Street is primarily made up of department stores and other commercial places with some residential buildings thrown in. The corner of 3rd Avenue and E. 148th Street is very interesting. If you traveled there you will marvel at the way the block was designed. It is like a semi-circle, without being a circle. There are many stores in this area. This is where most people flock to when they want to shop.

After you pass 3rd Avenue and head for St. Anns Avenue, you will run into a school and a bunch of boarded up buildings. This area is really ugly looking.

The other side of E. 148th Street is the home of the College of New Rochelle and has many small stores including a CVS.
