Living In Castle Hill

It's great that the New York Times is profiling resurgent Bronx hoods. This weeks "Living In" article profiles Castle Hill. Beyond being the childhood home of J. Lo, Castle Hill has shed some of its past as a high-crime area. The article highlights the improvements in the nabe and even the fact that some who fled for the burbs in the 80s and 90s are now moving back to take advantage of low property taxes. Oh yeah. and it's super easy to get to by public transport. The article is worth a read, and the hood worth a look.
