"Busy Shopping area. It's not like 5th Avenue, but it's nice."
Third Avenue at 149th Street in the Bronx has come a long way over the years. It is a central shopping area in the Bronx. About 20 years ago it used to house stores such as Alexanders and Woolworths, now you will find the newer bargain stores such as Conways, Learners, and Rainbows. It still reminds me of the way 125th street in harlem used to be. You could probably find almost anything that you need at 149th street. There are discount Jewelry stores, cell phone stores (sprint, T-Mobile, At&T) and fast food resteraunts. Small area, but lots of stores with close access to manhattan.
