"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.
Pros
  • Lots of schools for kids
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer
  • Too many people at times
