The Bronx may well be the new place to be in NYC, the city of neighborhoods. With the cost of living in The City spiraling upwards and out of control, you can now look to this borough for affordable, convenient residential options. Sections of the Bronx: Spuyten Duyvil, Riverdale and "SoBro" have already attracted residents looking for decent living with an easy commute to Manhattan, but this region has other viable options.

The Bronx has a number of public and private schools with an average Homefacts rating of C-. Locals, visitors, commuters and residents have easy access to the Subway and public buses.

The Grand Concourse is New York City’s own Champs-Élysées, community-orientated and quiet. Referred to as the “Park Avenue of the Bronx”, this wide boulevard is flanked by mostly art deco, but also Tudor and Beaux-Arts apartment buildings, galleries, museums and a plethora of restaurants. New developments aren’t feasible due to the historic importance of the area, but Elevated living, in newly renovated apartment buildings offers luxurious living coupled with affordability and convenience.

Landmarks along the Concourse include Yankee Stadium, the shingled farmhouse which is Edgar Allan Poe’s Cottage, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, where admission is free, and the Bronx General Post Office, currently under gentrification into a retail and office complex.

Shops along this strip include Bronx Terminal Market mall, incorporating Target and Marshalls, and is adjoined to Mill Pond Park lying on the Harlem River, with its 16 all-weather tennis courts, open areas and recreational spaces.

Fordham is a very interesting area close to Fordham University, and encompassing more than one neighborhood. This is where you’ll find celebrated landmarks, like the Bronx Zoo and the New York Botanical Garden. Fordham Road is the Bronx’s shopping mecca, famous for Arthur Avenue or Little Italy, brimming with Italian butchers, bakeries, restaurants and shops.

Being a University district, Fordham is home to the student sect, who mostly gravitate to apartments in Bedford Park, Pelham Parkway and Belmont (best known as Little Italy) which is the cheaper option of the three.

Highbridge lies across the Harlem River from Washington Heights, a hilly enclave north of Yankee Stadium. Interesting architectural features of the neighborhood include the Highbridge-Woodycrest Center on top of the hill, a health care facility in brick, limestone and terracotta, Park Plaza, the Art Deco apartment complex, and Woodycrest Avenue boasts several Victorian homes. Housing is mainly in condo units in the 1920/1930 era brick buildings, and affordable single- and multi-family accommodation.

The area got its name from The High Bridge. Constructed in the 1840’s, its stone arches spanning the Harlem River like a Roman aqueduct, joining Manhattan and the Bronx via 173rd Street, Manhattan and 170th Street, Bronx. The Big Apple’s oldest intact bridge was resurrected mid 2015 allowing pedestrians and cyclists convenient access from Highbridge to Upper Manhattan, complete with a greenway along Harlem River’s east bank.

Mott Haven in the South Bronx, has reinvented itself as a waterfront enclave offering industrial and residential properties. The first stop in The Bronx, within walking distance of everything, only eight minutes’ walk to NYC and under five minutes to Manhattan. Developers have invested much time and money into this waterfront land, Bruckner Boulevard and the Clock Tower lofts. This historic neighborhood encompasses the Antique District, the 149th Street Shopping District and authentic traditional eateries.

Residentially, 19th-century brick townhouses abound, with St. Mary's Park nearby featuring an indoor pool and recreational center. The Clocktower at Lincoln Ave & Bruckner Blvd was once a knitting factory, now developed into professional-class loft apartments.

The elevated 4 train will take you to Midtown in around half an hour, with stops along Jerome Avenue, and exits to Fordham Road.

The affordable Fordham Hill Oval is a gated co-op community which has enticed its share of Manhattans with its landscaped parklands overlooking the Harlem River. Residents can choose from large one-, two- and three-bedroom co-ops.

City Island is a narrow, mile-and-a-half long island off of Pelham, offering affordable waterfront apartments, condos, bungalows, cottages and Victorian-style residences in a family-oriented community. You can even have your own private beach if you get a house on the water. In fact, this is the only way to get to the beach in this small neighborhood, as all City Island’s beaches are private and adjoined to their properties. The area has its own elementary school, with high schools nearby in neighboring areas. Fresh seafood is the catch of this neighborhood, and you can access it all over the Island, while Lickety Split is the Island’s very own old-school ice cream soda-fountain shop.
