Two bedroom apartment in a hood that hugs the Harlem River and has a state park to call its own. This is located to the far west of Morris Heights about a block away from the eponymous nabe's Metro North stop, which is convenient.
If you need to take the real subway, you would just walk down Tremont (the cross street is West Tremont) to the B/D at the Concourse or the 176th 4 stop at Jerome.
Roberto Clemente State Park is a 25 acre waterfront state park in the hood. That certainly doesn't hurt the quality of life.
Another neighborhood gem, which is housed on Bronx Community College's campus, is the Hall of Fame for Great Americans (you've gotta check of the panoramic virtual tour after the jump). This pantheon of great Americans is beautiful, classical, overlooks the Harlem River, and was America's first "Hall of Fame" in 1900. Eat it Cleveland and Cooperstown.
When you think of far western Morris Heights, think Inwood for half the price.
