"Nice Shopping Area - Bad In Some Areas"
Fordham is very known in the Bronx for its large shopping area. It includes large brand stores along with some mom and pop stores as well. The area during the day is good to shop but getting from point to another is a hassle do to the large amount of traffic and people walking the streets. There is also a lot of high school students int eh area due to the location of Roosevelt High School. The 9 BX, 12 BX, 22 BX, 41 BX, and the 55 BX pass by Fordham which makes is easy to get there using public transportation. The 4, D, and B trains stop at Fordham. The D and B train leave you on Grand Concourse and Fordham which is near Staples and PC Richard & Sons. The 4 Train leave you on Jerome Avenue which is near Sammy's, Modell's and Monroe College. On Jerome Avenue and Fordham you can also access the 32 BX bus as well. Overall i consider a Fordham a wonderful shopping center and a nice area. The only thing that brings Fordham Road negative marks is the large mod rate and fights that start in the middle of the streets which happens in the late nights but other then that Its a great area to be during the day.
