TRANSPORTATION is hard to beat: SUBWAYS B / D / 4 / 5 / 2 and Metro North stops all in WALKING DISTANCE, 20 MIN anywhere in Manhattan, east or west!
The BRONX TERMINAL MARKET is just down the street, with Target (and Starbucks), a Food Bazaar Supermarket, Bed Bath and Beyond, Best Buy, BJ's Club Store, Chuck E Cheese's, and more.
PARKS: SURROUNDED BY PARKS, FRANZ SIGEL PARK is just across the street on Walton, featuring a well maintained rolling walking path, BASEBALL fields, and a DOG RUN, and on the 153rd street side, a large PLAYGROUND on an ELEVATED plane gives kids a place to play up and away from the street.
Newer parks include the sprawling MACOMBS DAM PARK next to YANKEE STADIUM, with a premier RUNNING TRACK, soccer/football field, handball courts, basketball courts, fitness equipment and more, plus additional baseball fields and walking paths through natural grass surrounds. There's also another playground and a SKATE PARK across from the park.
Also nearby is the MILL POND PARK, with a beautiful strolling esplanade along the Bronx bank of the Harlem River, with water features, GRILLING areas, and both public (city/outdoors) and private (club/indoor) TENNIS COURTS.
HISTORY & ARCHITECTURE: This strip along Grand Concourse and Walton Ave is full of history - it's the largest collection of Art Deco building in the US after South Beach.
675 Walton is a landmarked building, built in the Art Moderne style, which celebrated speed and forward momentum - the building resembles a ship when looking upon it from the corner of 153rd and Walton, port windows dotting down the front of the building in a vertical line. With grand spaces, soaring ceilings, and plenty of historical charm, it's one of the most sought-after properties in the area.?
UP AND COMING: The entire CONCOURSE neighborhood is up and coming, with Yankee Stadium central to much of the development. New restaurants large and small surround the area.
Across from The Bronx Courthouse on 161st is the other neighborhood Starbucks. The historical Bronx Post Office has been taken private with a rooftop club/restaurant and new shopping and dining destinations planned.?
TRULY A HOME IN THE CITY easy access to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan but a reprieve from the crowds. Coveted outdoor space galore! All signs point to the continued growth and development of this area.
