Living In: Jerome Park

Share Info About Jerome Park
The neighborhood considered Jerome Park consists of the park, itself, as well as Lehman College, the Concourse Yards, and the narrow band of residential streets that surround them. Located in the northwestern section of the Bronx, this community displays a mix of single-family homes, duplexes, and most of all--6-story apartment complexes. Yes, the vast majority of buildings in Jerome Park are the pre-war, courtyard buildings where you can easily find a NY apartment that fits your needs and your budget. Although this neighborhood doesn't claim to have the best public transit, Jerome Park apartments commonly offer large spaces for reasonable rents. Situated between Kingsbridge Road and Van Cortlandt Park, this part of town covers quite a bit of area. But most of that land is used for purposes other than housing, which puts most of the focus on the crescent shaped band that wraps around the west side. It's unfortunate, but a great deal of subway options lie in neighboring communities, but none directly within. Although a few outlying corners of Jerome Park can access the trains by foot, most residents will need to consider the other options. But this is where the neighborhood gains an advantage. Although it's located up near 200th street, Jerome Park is served by the BxM3 express bus, collecting passengers along Sedgwick Avenue for about a 35 minute ride into Midtown Manhattan. One of the treasures of the Bronx sits between the Jerome Park, Kingsbridge, and Fordham Manor neighborhoods. The Kingsbridge Armory sits as an early 20th century example of fine Romanesque architecture for a commercial purpose. And since military operations remain dormant, this armory has gone through a slew of functions, leading to today's political battle for redevelopment. Until change is brought forth, this will remain somewhat of a structure in limbo, but in the meantime, it is one of the neighborhood's finest architectural gems. You might be wondering how the Jerome Park, the park, compares with the noteworthy greenspaces in the Bronx. Well, considering its size, it doesn't quite provide the same sort of amenities and greenspace. Rather, most of the land is occupied by the Jerome Park Reservoir, which expects to be back up and running by the end of 2012. Although this neighborhood doesn't have great train access, it offers quite a bit more space for much less cost than Manhattan. In fact, Jerome Park apartments are perfect for someone who wants the New York-style apartment without paying the hefty Manhattan pricetag.
