Listing of the Day: Woodlawn Rental

240th Street, 3 Bedrooms - $1800/month

This is a 3 bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a two family house. This would be nice for a share for recent college grads or a small family. Along with the apartment you'd get access to the backyard and deck and a washer/dryer on premises. Oh, and the rent covers utilities, too.

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.
