"Quality Living in the Bronx"

As you near this neighborhood you are also about to leave the city – it’s pretty far from the nightlife and the action on Wall Street. It’s a suitable enough seeming neighborhood, though, for those who are interested in settling down away from their nocturnal ways, and creating a family or just retiring from their family life. This area is not as suburban as you would think, being so far from the city, but it certainly isn’t Park Ave, either. The streets are clean here and the house fronts are welcoming and appear well maintained – though there aren’t many shops and restaurants that would interest anyone who wasn’t a resident.
