Listing of the Day: Bedford Park Beauty

325 E. 201st Street, 1 bedroom co-op, $149,000

Yes, that's right... The listing price on this well-kept Bedford Park gem is actually $149,000. I'm not sure you can even buy a walk-in closet anywhere else in the city for a price like that.

Located in perhaps what is the best building in Bedford Park (we should know, we call it home), this 700 square foot co-op actually has a large eating area which can easily be converted to a second bedroom. The apartment features beautiful hardwood floors throughout and the kitchen and bathroom appear to be in pretty nice shape.

There is tons of stuff to do within walking distance, including The New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo. The hood is also home to Fordham University and Lehman College, both of which have lots of events, lectures, and programs which are open to the public. Arthur Avenue is also within walking distance, so you never have to go far to find the best ingredients to cook with or Zagat-rated restaurants to dine in. To burn off any weight you gain from the Arthur Avenue visits, you can do any number of outdoor activities on the beautiful Mosholu Parkway's rolling green space. The area is also right along the NYC Greenway bike path which takes you all the way up to Westchester.

Transportation options are abundant. Metro-North's Botanical Garden station is a 2-minute walk away, and the express D and 6 trains are just a few blocks away.
