"Lots of Vacant Lots"

This neighborhood’s main draw is probably the neighboring Bronx Zoological Gardens – though the neighborhood doesn’t have much to do with those. This is a low-income neighborhood, which becomes apparent as you walk through it and don’t see too many storefronts, but instead see many tenement buildings and vacant lots (always the sign of a non-developing neighborhood, which in terms of New York real estate is death). There is history here for Italian Americans, who consider this neighborhood to be the sort of Little Italy of the Bronx – the sort of place evoked in the movie a Bronx tale: not too nice a neighborhood, but one that carries enough nostalgia to overlook such neighborhood lacks as grass.
