This unit is is just south of Pelham Parkway. It is huge at 1,190 square feet and cheap at $188,000. The apartment itself looks nice and the building well kept.
Pelham Parkway is more than a road. It serves as a miles long park that connects Pelham Bay and Bronx Parks. It's nice for walking, biking, or just playing.
There is decent shopping on White Plains Road and you'd be pretty close to the Zoo and to the Botanical Garden. The BX 12 runs east-west on Pelham Parkway so you'd be able to get to City Island and Pelham Bay Park pretty easily heading east and you'd be able to access Fordham Road and Arthur Avenue by heading west.
Also further down on the eastern edge of Pelham Parkway is the Garabedian Christmas House. Seeing is believing, but BoogieDowner is sure you'd make the trip down ole Pelham Parkway on the Bx12 to witness the spectacle.
Transportation is pretty nice with the Morris Park 5 station a few blocks away.
