Obviously the hood is on the upswing with the whole Yankee Stadium/Gateway Center development orgy happening, but this apartment itself is pretty damned nice too.
The apartment is renovated, has a nice pass through in the kitchen, and how can you not love the pimped out walkway outside of the building with 3 foot tall numbers for the address. You'd also have a 24 hour doorman in the building, which is a rarity in the Bronx outside of foo-foo Riverdale. And the maintenance is only $558! The listing mentions indoor parking, but the BoogieDowner is sure that it must be expensive and wait listed. Just a hunch...
You'd be super close to the Bronx Museum of the Arts, and all the aforementioned Stadium development. Joyce Kilmer and Franz Sigel Parks are pretty cool as well.
Transportation is sweet with the B/D and 4 at 161st Street.
