SKI16, Home Buyer in Bronx, NY

Can anyone tell me anything about Gomer Street in Yorktown Heights?

Asked by SKI16, Bronx, NY Sat Jan 10, 2009

Is it a residential neighborhood; there seem to be quite a few businesses on it. Is it a very busy street, or would it be a good block for young children? I know Gomer is a very long road, I am specifically interested in the section of block closer to Granite Springs Road. Thanks!

I've been in Yorktown over 40 years and my children also went to TJ. Gomer St. is only slightly busier than it was years ago as there is only one additional through road connected to it. London Rd. which used to dead end, now goes through to other developments on both sides of Gomer. Other than that, there has been no new development that would use Gomer St. for access. I've sold several homes on Gomer St. to families with young children, and the yards are fenced. As a matter of fact, my dog sitter, whose house I also sold, used to live on Gomer St. and my dogs were totally safe. Hope this has been helpful.

I grew up in the area and went to Thomas Jefferson Elementary School. It has gotten much busier over the years. I would not reccomend it for small children as it can get very busy during rush hour.

Let me clarify - when we say real main road we think of 202, 132, Saw Mill, Rt. 6, etc. - Quinlan, Curry, London and Gomer are not as busy and conveniently located -

Hi. My name is Joseph Nazar, and I used to live in The Crossroads development on Gomer St. (on Weskora Rd., to be exact.) We moved there, from Manhattan, in 1961, when I was 4. I've researched the history of Gomer St. since 1977. If anyone needs any historical background on any part of the Gomer St. area, or on any of the former farmhouses, I'd be more than glad to share my information. My e-mail is josnaz@aol.com.
(And, by the way, I'm very much interested in the sociological phenonemon of people moving to the Gomer St. area from the Bronx, and how it was to go from an apartment on, say Belmont Ave. in the 1950s, and live in the country, in a different environment --if any former Bronx resident has the time to talk to me about this, I'd be most appreciative. --I've even been thinking of contacting the Historian of the Bronx, and suggest that he chronicle the Bronx Diaspora in northern Westchester and Putnam.)

HI my name is Denise and I moved from the Bronx over twenty years ago (most of my family still live there) Pelham Bay Area! Gomer is a busy street and there are so many other areas if you are concerned about the trafffic flow and you have children. However, I did sell a lovely home on Gomer to a family that loved the location and the house. Do you want Yorktown High School or Lakeland High School?

There is a great neighborhood closer to the corner deli, off marlet and birch street. decent acreage, good people. Your kids could walk/bike their way to middleschool/highschoo when they get olderl and the corner deli is a convenient place to pick up some items without having to go all the way into town to the A&P. I would email atyourservice@houlihanlawrence.com, or go to their website http://www.houlihanlawrence.com they were really responsive when we were looking! good luck in your search.

Where do you live in the Bronx? I moved to Yorktown from the Bronx about 14 years ago and I would love to help you find a great neighborhood for you and your children. I can say that Gomer street closer to Granite Springs Road is a little bit less busy then the other end of Gomer. There are lots of quiet streets right off of Gomer that are perfect for small children and there is even an Elementary School (Thomas Jefferson) on Gomer as well. I sold a house on Gomer not to long ago and it was a family with small children looking to move to a quieter street. Please feel free to call me with any questions (914) 275-5988 or visit my website at http://www.nyhometeam.prudentialrand.com.

Gomer Street is one of the busier streets in town. It is a residential neighborhood, but its hard to give you an exact answer. Each of us looks for different things when it comes to buying a house. For some people, a busy street means easy access to public transportation, while for others it may mean that they would not feel comfortable taking a walk with the family after dinner on a street with a double yellow line.
I would tell you to take a look at the area at different times of the day, see how it feels to you. Also, think about what you are looking for in a neighborhood-do you need a cul-de-sac, or will property on a busy road work for you if you have enough space?
My husband and I live and both work in Yorktown, this is where we have chosen to raise our family and we love it. It is a big decission, if you need help finding the right place give me a call, I can help.
Good luck to you,

I can tell you just about everything. That is, grew up here. I had many friends on this street. I know who owned the farm before it was a sub division and when Gomer St. was built. There are only two businesses; A Deli on the end you are looking at and a Garden Supply down by the school on the other end. Oh and a Verizon switching station across from the deli.

It is a busy road. It is also a Double Yellow Line road, your kids will not be riding their bikes on this road at a young age, but there is a park on this road. Sparkle Lake is also near by as well as the Yorktown Middle School and High School Campus.

Because of the Yellow Line, you tend to get more for your money than say a house on the side streets, but with the side street your children can play in the street so to speak, though most of these houses have nice yards where the kids play.

Yorktown has quite a number of former Bronx residence living in town. In fact I sold a home just down the road from here to one family not too long ago.

There are only two houses currently available on Gomer St. and 5 within a ½ mile radius. Click below for the 5 listings.
