"Big Reservoir, Transportation not so great"

Jerome Park is a reservation that mostly consists of a fairly large reservoir, and its neighborhood is generally a working class residential sort of place. There is a large community of Dominicans that live here, and a relatively high percentage of the residents here also live below the poverty line. The reservoir actually serves to furnish the city with water (as reservoirs are apt to do), so it’s not much of a play place. If you want to get on a train from this neighborhood, you’ll most likely be taking a bus to a train station, as it would be quite a walk otherwise. Adding the time it takes the bus to the time the train takes to escort one to Midtown Manhattan equals a pretty long commute.
