Living In: Mount Eden


Share Info About Mount Eden
If you’re looking a modest, renter’s community with some interesting sights and history, living in Mount Eden might just be what you need. Located in the West Bronx, Mount Eden is a working class neighborhood that has undergone quite a few changes over the last decade -- changes that added quite a boost to the quality of life of the neighborhood. In addition to the abundance of apartment buildings and multi-family homes available to the average renter, there are a number of places to go and things to do in the area. The latest improvement to the neighborhood has been the addition of the New Settlement Community Campus in 2012. Located on Jerome Avenue near 172nd Street, this newest structure totaling 172,000 square feet houses many educational entities such as the Mount Eden Children’s Academy (P.S. 555), the Comprehensive Model Project School (Intermediate/High School 327), and a school for children with special needs. The building comes equipped with a state-of-the-art music room, an auditorium, a gym, library, and a science lab. It also serves as a community center and as such, contains a free health clinic (provided by Montefiore Medical Center), a dance studio (partnered with Alvin Alley Dance Theater), a swimming pool and a rooftop garden. It has been an extremely well-received project and has been most influential in elevating the profile and pride of the neighborhood. It should also be mentioned that Mount Eden is also nothing if not commuter-friendly. For those heading to Manhattan and the other boroughs, there is the #4 Train at Jerome Avenue which gets you into Midtown East in 30-40 minutes. There is also the B and D trains at the Grand Concourse near 174th Street, which will bring you to Midtown West in roughly 35-45 minutes.
