Listing of the Day: Woodlawn Rental

305-307 E. 239th Street, 1 bedroom, $1,200/month

In case you couldn't tell, we are big fans of Woodlawn here at the BoogieDowner. What can we say... We like our pints. So we found yet another great listing in the "Little Ireland" of the Bronx.

Not too many details on this one bedroom, but the pictures pretty much tell the story. Looks like a very basic, no frills one bedroom. The listing tauts "new appliances and countertops," as well as a live-in super, renovated bathroom, and refinished hardwood floors. Not bad for $1,200 a month. Another bonus: no broker's fee on this baby.

Here's the BoogieDowner rundown on the hood:

Woodlawn is a very unique neighborhood in the Bronx. It is an Irish enclave that has enough bars and pubs to make even Galway jealous. My favorites are Rory Dolan's (technically in Yonkers) on McLean Avenue and the Rambling House on Katonah Avenue. The people in Woodlawn are super-friendly (and some even have funny broughs!). The shepherd's pie and other Irish specialties are can't misses. Obviously St. Patty's Day is not to missed up here.

Woodlawn is somewhat insular (and a little unknown) because it is surrounded by Yonkers (Westchester) to the North, Van Cortlandt Park to the West, Woodlawn Cemetery to the South and the Bronx River Parkway to the East. But, there is a Woodlawn 4 stop (on the edge of the nabe between the cemetery and the Van Cortlandt Park. Woodlawn also has its own Metro-North stop.
