"Quarry Road - where's the quarry?"
Quarry Road leads to no quarry at all; at least not modernly speaking. It does however, border a hospital, St. Barnabas Hospital to be precise. It also borders a somewhat rundown and abused looking park. Towards the southwest it ends at 3rd Avenue which is an important and very trafficked street in the Bronx. It's saving grace is that towards the northeast it leads directly to Arthur Avenue, the heart of the Little Italy of the Bronx. Park the car and take a walk; this neighborhood is great for finding authentic Italian food, made by real Italians! A wonderful market can also be found in this area, fresh ingredients, good restaurants, bakeries and more.
