"Not Especially Appealing"

This neighborhood – which also goes by the names of Crotona Park East and Crotona (though this is different from Crotona Ave, which is in East Tremont) – is not exactly tourist material. It doesn’t even make the cut for a lovely place to take a walk, or even a somewhat decent place to take a walk. The streets don’t offer much in the way of aesthetic pleasure, with low income residential dwellings taking up most of the space in this neighborhood. There are a high number of public housing projects here, which unfortunately add to the ugly nature of the area.
