Local Reviews

It's in New York and it's very walkable I have the pleasure of walking to work if I want to wveryday

I enjoy the diverse cultures I am surrounded by. I also enjoy the proximity I have to everything including stores, bars, public transportation, bakeries, and restaurants. I also find the music I am surrounded by to be different and enjoyable.

I love that Dunkin is so close to my house. I love going to the restaurants near my house or the mall.

I only like it because its not so far from my job. My apartment is nice too but some people in the building are not too nice

There are a lot of restaurants. There is cultural diversity. There are loads of trees and parks near by.

I love how everyone knows each other and watches out for each other. And there's a bit of everything in walking distance from the neighborhood.

About

Bronx, NY

Overview of Bronx

Are you a Yankees fan? Then raise a glass to the great batsmen from the Bronx, from Babe Ruth to Reggie Jackson to Derek Jeter. Do you feel like dancing? Then maybe the hip-hop history of the "Boogie Down Bronx" calls out to you. For whatever reason you're seeking a Bronx apartment or rental, know that 42 square miles of city and parks fill this borough of New York. From the historic mansions of Riverdale to the seafood on City Island, the Bronx welcomes you.

Living in the Bronx

Jonas Bronck began European settlement here in 1639. The borough is named for him. A rural area, it grew populous with immigrants starting in the mid-1800s. Then the hilly West Bronx and the flatter East Bronx were annexed to New York City. Together, they became a borough in 1898. When subways started running, the Bronx evolved into a railroad suburb of Manhattan. By the 1950s, the first waves of Italians, Irish, Germans, and Jews had moved in and moved on. They were replaced by African Americans and Hispanic Americans, particularly Puerto Ricans and Dominicans. The Bronx came alive with Latin music and hip-hop. The 1970s brought poverty and unemployment, but the borough has rebounded with a serious construction boom.

Of the five boroughs of New York, the Bronx is the only one based primarily on the mainland. While the Marble Hill neighborhood of Manhattan joins the Bronx north of the Harlem River, the rest of the city is island living. Bronx County may be the third most densely populated in the United States, but a quarter of the land here is green, open space.

Work & Study in the Bronx

The Bronx presents plenty of opportunity for both study and work. In terms of education, Fordham University is the Bronx's best-known campus. There are three City University of New York schools here, too. The best maritime education in the country can be found at the State University of New York Maritime College, in the Bronx. Work tends to be in manufacturing, education, and health and social services. Construction, primarily of housing, is also active remaking lots across the South Bronx.

Cost of Living in the Bronx

Living in the Bronx won't cost you as much as some of the other boroughs of New York City, but it's still more expensive than most of the country. Your rent will depend greatly on which part of the Bronx you choose to call home. Costs range from the low end in the South Bronx to the high end in affluent areas such as Riverdale. The average monthly rent for a two-bedroom apartment in the Bronx is $1,400.

Bronx Attractions & Entertainment

Pilgrims from around the world flock to the Bronx and "the House that Ruth Built"-Yankee Stadium. A new ballpark across the street has replaced the 1923 original, but watching the so-called Bronx Bombers play remains a treat. Down in South Bronx, a high-rise much like any other also lures in tourists. This tower off the Cross Bronx Expressway is where DJ Kool Herc helped invent hip-hop. Hush Hip Hop Tours will take you sightseeing if you like. There's the Bronx Zoo, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, the New York Botanical Gardens, and Poe Cottage, where Edgar Allan Poe saw out his days. For a nice long walk, try Pelham Bay Park, New York's largest, in the East Bronx.

Bronx Special Events

Year-round, the Bronx celebrates its culture and history. There's the Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade and Sweden Day. The Tour de Bronx is New York State's largest free bicycling event. Look for events during Bronx Week, such as the Grand Parade and a film festival. Or try the Bronx Zoo on a Wednesday, when admission is suggested donation only!
