Living In: Bronxwood


Share Info About Bronxwood
Bronxwood is a neighborhood in the central portion of the Bronx, with the Bronx River as the community's western border. The southern boundary of Bronxwood is the Pelham Parkway (and the Pelham Parkway neighborhood). Housing stock in the community consists mostly of low- to mid-rise apartment buildings, along with several semi-detached townhouses. However, you can still find free-standing single-family and multi-family homes in the neighborhood, mostly along the edge of the Bronx Park on Bronx Park East. There is no lack of commercial establishments for residents of Bronxwood apartments. In fact, the old Boston Post Road, Allerton Avenue, White Plains Road, and Wililamsbridge Road all provide uncountable amounts of retail outlets, local shops, markets, and a variety of services. Bronxwood is located east of Bronx Park, the New York Botanical Gardens, as well as the Bronx Zoo, all following the Bronx River. Residents of Bronxwood apartments have a few public transporation options when commuting into Manhattan. The numbers 2 & 5 trains are fairly accessible from all edges of the neighborhood. At the southwest corner lies the Pelham Parkway Station, which is serviced by both the 2 & 5 trains, while the northwest corner holds Allerton Avenue Station, carrying the 2 train at all times and the 5 train during rush hour. And, finally, there is the Pelham Parkway Station, which is serviced by the 5 train. These options provide both West Side-bound and East-Side bound express trains. But for those who would rather hop on an express bus and relax on the commute into Manhattan, there is the BxM11 express bus. This particular bus stops along White Plains Road at Pelham Parkway for its final stop before the express section, making the trip to Midtown in less than 30 minutes.
