Listing of the Day: Yankee Stadium Rental - Sharing is Caring

161st Street at Morris Avenue, 4 Bedrooms - $1850/month

This is a very large apartment in the Yankee Stadium area. At 4 bedrooms, you should either have a super big family or a few friends that are looking to share. The single bathroom with such a large unit is a bit of a drawback. But hey, if you and 3 of your friends need to pay your own rent and want to live near transportation in a hood with some cool stuff to do check this out. It even appears that the place is somewhat renovated.

You'd find yourself in the heart of the Yankee Stadium development orgy in this apartment. Obviously, the City and the Yankees want this hood to do well. It's probably one of the most heavily visited outer-borough attractions for tourists. Expect an already decent hood to flourish. Now if only you could use slightly illegal municipal bills to fund your next move like the Yankees, you'd be looking at real estate sale listings instead of rentals, but that's fodder for another post.

Joyce Kilmer Park on 161st Street is a nice stretch of green across from the courthouse on 161st. You be reasonably close to the new Gateway Center Mall, which is set to open in the next year or so. The Bronx Museum of the Arts is up on 165th and the Grand Concourse, but there is art up and down the Grand Concourse in the 160s and 150s with beautiful Art Deco architecture. You'd also be near the new healthy foodie option 4Food.

Lots of choices for transportation. For those who work on the West Side there is the B/D at 161st. For those who work on the East Side there is the 4 at 161st and Jerome. And pretty soon you'll have a Metro North stop around the corner as well.

Another added bonus of the hood is that if you're a keggler, the nabe's got you covered too; Ball Park Lanes is on 160th and River Avenue (literally across from the soon to be old Yankee Stadium).
