"I'm not going to recommend it"

Yet another low income residential neighborhood – the Bronx is absolutely stocked with them. The area has been known to have its share of social problems, so it’s really not recommended that anyone who needn’t be involved in this neighborhood do so. The most seen building in this neighborhood is that of the five or six story tenement house, and the landscape is very hilly and often there are stairs to help pedestrians out with the climbs. Looking around the neighborhood, mostly what you see are brick low income residencies, and not much else.

"good places to eat when visiting the Botanical Gardens"

I used to work in this area and it wasn't picturesque. In the springtime the side streets get pretty because many of them are tree lined, but the main drags are the pits. They’re inhospitable to foot traffic because it is not the best place for shopping unless you’re looking for a liquor store, and the buildings are uninspired. I saw quite a few junkies and pan handlers on my way to work. It is on the 5 and 2 lines though, which will get you to Manhattan quicker than you’d think; about 30 minutes. There are a lot of good restaurants in Tremont. Most of them are Mexican or Caribbean, and though they’re not fine dining establishments know for their décor the food is fantastic. The Bronx Zoo and Botanical Gardens are nearby and both are worth the trip.
