I have lived in the Bronx all for a majority of my life and find that each person has their own perspective of what is safe and what is not. There are some neighborhoods that some clients have bought homes in and others where buyers have shyed away from because of their own experiences. When you look at various areas there are people that live there and are perfectly happy and comfortable. I would suggest that you visit the neighborhood or even the local police precint to find out what the crime statistics are.
Below I have attached a link for you to visit the statistics of the area.
Best of luck. Please give me a call if you would like to discuss further.
