As an agent we cannot comment on specific neighborhoods as it is against the law for us to do so. But I would like you to know that I grew up around the Bruckner/White Plains Road section of the Bronx. My parents always kept an eye on us but if one is looking for trouble, I am sure you will find it.
My only concern for you, is regarding public transportation. There is the Bx. 39, Bx. 36 and Bx. 6 that runs alongs part of Clason Point but no trains. You will have to take a bus to the No. 6. At night in any area that are always sketchy people out. If you drive, don't worry about it.
I would also sugget you contact the 43rd Precinct located at 900 Fteley Avenue. They are responsible for this section of the Bronx. Another great way to find out, is to take a walk around the specific area you are interested in buying in. I usually do a community drive with my clients, they always get a better perspective of the area, the good, the bad, etc.
If you have any additional question, please give me a call to discuss. I would be happy to show you around.
