"Quite friendly neighborhood...a bit of a commute from the city"

Very quite with access to everything...commute is a bit long from the city but many options available. Not much places to eat out with mostly chain restaurant in the area. Shopping, banks, gym are all close by. A nice neighborhood to go home to...

"Okay area, not much to do"

This Bronx neighborhood (which borders on the Bronx Park, home of the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden) is home to plenty of high rise apartment buildings, as well as numerous attached homes. Perhaps the strangest thing to see about this neighborhood in respect to the rest of the city are the spaces between these homes and buildings (which is a little seen feat in Manhattan, or even Brooklyn). This neighborhood has a homey kind of feel, at least in places like Allerton Ave, where there are actual hedges that border the homes there.
