"Curvy, Split, and Nice Looking"

E. 184th Street is quite unusual. Unlike most streets in the Bronx, E. 184th Street splits at Park Avenue. Despite this split, you can get to each section. You just have to maneuver around Park Avenue to get to the other side.

The bright spot on the side that ends at Arthur Avenue is St. Barnabas Hospital. This hospital is situated on a huge garden-like area. When you see the edge of the area, you would think it is a park.

There are a few schools in the area as well.

On the other side of Park Avenue where E. 184th Street continues till it meets Jerome Avenue, there is a section that is quite curvy. This section from Webster Avenue to Marion Avenue is quite curvy, so be careful driving there. Otherwise, much of the area is quite nice and clean.
  • Beautiful looking area

"On East 184th Street"

This street is chalked full of businesses, churches, and places to eat, and there is a nice vibe and overall comfort and ease to the street. I liked how friendly the people were, and ready and able they were to serve you in the stores, and the unpretentiousness of the people on the streets. All in all it was a very good street, but not really worth a climb into the Bronx, in my opinion.
