Listing fo the Day: Highbridge Co-op

941 Jerome Avenue, 1 Bedroom - $139,000

Baseball season has got BoogieDowner feeling a little neglectful in covering the Yankee Stadium area. So here is a nice sized one bedroom (725 square feet) for a decent price ($139K). This unit is right near the new Yankee Stadium.

Here's a little more about hood (again): 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.

Joyce Kilmer Park on 161st Street is a nice stretch of green across from the courthouse on 161st. In this apartment you would have been right across from Macombs Dam Park, which is the site of the new stadium. Maybe when they knock down the old stadium, there be some new park land for the residents of the nabe. You'd 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).
