This area of the Bronx intersects with Parkchester and you have access to buses, the Parkchester and Bruckner Shopping areas. As well as the No. 2, 5 and 6 trains. If you are interested in Schools Statistics, Home Prices, Crime Rates or other information, Trulia has allows to search and view those datat. I always suggest to clients that they walk the area in the day, night and weekends to get a feel of it. Everyone's outlook is different and since you will be living there, that is one of the best resources. You can also tallk to the local police in the area to get more information.
Please give me a call if you would like to discuss further.
