"Quiet, urban-style Bronx neighborhood"

This neighborhood is a relatively peaceful one – it’s not the type of place that a twenty-something seeking a bar and nightlife sort of neighborhood would be happy, however. It’s more ideal for families or other people who are more settled down in their home lives and careers. There is a nice park in the middle of the neighborhood that is home to a lot of athletic courts, and a decent amount of trees – which of course beautiful during the warmer months (and becomes something of a snow covered pain during the winter months). The train ride into midtown Manhattan is about thirty to forty minutes from here, which isn’t too bad (it could be worse).
