"Residential Urban Neighborhood"

This neighborhood isn’t a bad one as far as Bronx neighborhoods go – the streets are clean and pleasant enough to behold (ie, there aren’t many vacant lots or abandoned buildings to be found). Another pleasing quality about this neighborhood is the fact that it still resembles the rest of the city, unlike a lot of Bronx neighborhoods which often begin to look like suburbs. Fordham Heights features high rise apartment buildings and the sort of store fronts that are found throughout New York. It isn’t a bad train ride to midtown from here, though if you’re thinking about moving here and would like to spend any time downtown at all, you may want to reconsider.
