"Unappealing Bronx Neighborhood"

This is another South Bronx community that you’ve probably heard tell about – not exactly the safest of neighborhoods, even if crime rates in New York City have been on the decline for years. The streets here are a bit run down and when there are store fronts many of them are drug stores and 99 cent stores rather than any kind of trendy shops or restaurants (ie, tourists stay out unless for some reason you’ve come to New York to check out the hood). It doesn’t feature the most ideal commute into downtown, either – you could end up spending at least an hour getting there.
