I am assuming these puppies were originally meant to be sold, but alas, the real estate bubble has forced the developer to rent them. Not bad if you are looking for a big apartment on a great block but just don't have that down payment for a purchase yet.
Spend your time saving money while renting this 2 bedroom, 2 bath newly constructed apartment in Bedford Park. I can speak from experience that this is a very nice and residential block that is literally 1.5 blocks to the Botanical Garden. You would also have the Mosholu Parkway for walks and Bedford Park Blvd for small shopping. If you needed to do bigger shopping you could shoot up to Norwood for the 204th/Bainbridge experience.
Fordham University and Lehman College are always provide cultural and athletic events in the hood as well.
Transportation is abundant. B/D at the Concourse and Bedford Park Blvd, 4 at Jerome and Bedford Park Blvd, and for the indulgent ones, Metro North at the Botanical Garden stop.
