Hello Mary Finn,

My opinion of Boston Road in pelham parkway is great. I have lived in this area since I was 10 years of age. I have moved all over pelham parkway, from Bolton Street to Cruger Avenue to Wallace Avenue and currently just live a few blocks away in Morris Park.

This area is great because it has a large variety of shopping, food and transportation, it has some of the best schools in the bronx. I went to Public School 135, Christopher Columbus High School, the parks are great, I spend most of my free time in the Handball Courts =).

If you have any other questions regarding this neighborhood please don't hesitate to give me a call, I can call myself an expert in this area.

Amenities Galore!!!!! From car dealerships to the Bronx Zoo and Botanical Garden, parks, shopping and everything in between. Many Pre-war buildings (if you are moving into one) with tons of charming details. Easy access to public transportation, though I agree that parking could be a bit tough. Best of luck and great choice!!

Verrry busy area. I agree with the other answers when they say it is near everything, but it will be VERY hard to find parking or peace and quiet in this area.
