"Working class neighborhood"

This is a working class neighborhood, which can generally be recognized in the city by a lack of big name businesses, like say Starbucks. Working class neighborhoods like this one also tend to be very residential – meaning they do not cater to tourists in the least (unless a tourist is for some reason dying to hang out at the corner bodega eating a hot pastrami sandwich). There are single-family homes here, but there are also a few tenement buildings, as well as the Castle Hill housing development, which includes several high-rise buildings. There is a level of community here that is nice to see, but its proximity to the South Bronx (known as a violent neighborhood) has real estate agents terming Castle Hill the “Southeast Bronx” in efforts to move apartments.
