"Cute and Convenient"

Naples Terrace is a typical Bronx street, complete with a no outlet road and very close proximity to a shopping center. It has a very private and secluded feel because of the no outlet road, and it makes this a plus when considering where to live. Naples Terrace is mostly strongly built, two or three story buildings, many of them with courtyards that display a variety of gardening skills. It is beautiful in the summer. It is close the 231st commercial area, and thus also close to the subway and the main busses that cater to the Bronx. There are many convenience stores here and really, living at Naples Terrace is quite convenient.

"Quiet Street Among the Bustle of Kingsbridge"

Naples Terrace originates at Kingsbridge Road, and ends in a dead end, two blocks further on. It's the kind of street that you find in the Bronx, just a block away from a commercial area, that gives you a private feel. This is due to the dead end.

Naples Terrace is lined with really nice, pre-war buildings, many of which have large courts at their entrances, where the supers plant nice plants and there are flowers in summer. The apartments are nice, and the ones that face east and south onto 231st street have plenty of light. Naples Terrace is one of the step streets of the Bronx and upper Manhattan. Due to the terrain, the street itself ends and there is a long staircase leading down to Broadway. There is another one on Godwin Terrace, leading down to 231st Street. These steps are part of the character of the neighborhood, and a great added convenience if you don't mind climbing stairs.

When you are here, you are just one block away from so many conveniences, like the Stop n' Shop, Staples, 99 cent stores galore, dry cleaners, restaurants, drug stores, etc. Many doctors have their offices in these buildings on Naples Terrace and on Kingsbridge Avenue. I think you would like it if you were looking for something residential, yet close to everything.

When I first moved to this area, I was hoping to get an apartment on Naples Terrace, but I found something else nearby before I could get in there. But I would recommend it to anyone as being nice, safe, and convenient.

"Convenient to All!"

Godwin Terrace is a comparatively short street, located in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx. It starts at W. 230th Street and runs north for several blocks. When it crosses 231st Street, it has a section with a typical feature of this part of the Bronx-the step street. You have to go up a long flight of stairs to get to the next section.

The best thing about Godwin Terrace is its extreme convenience. You are one block from the #1 Subway, and you can easily catch the 7, 10, 20, or 9 buses, which will take you all over the Bronx and into Manhattan. The number 7 bus will take you to the A train in Upper Manhattan. You also have many stores there. On 231st street, you have Chinese restaurants and chicken places, bodegas, nail salons, tailors, dry cleaners, a Dunkin' Donuts, coffee shops, newsstands, and a branch of the New York Public Library. Nearby there is a Walgreen's, a Duane Reade, a Stop n' Shop, and a Staples. If you like the gym, there is a Bally's on 231st Street, and a place called Astral Fitness on 230th Street, which is very nice. You are also not far from Van Cortlandt Park, which has all kinds of facilities, such as a municipal golf course, a free public swimming pool (outdoors), handball courts, and plenty of trails.

There are many bars in the neighborhood, and a couple of them have music, but I have never gone to any of them.
