This is a very decent price for such a well maintained unit. This co-op is a block and a half south of Pelham Parkway and very close to the Zoo and the Botanical Garden.
The kitchen looks like it was renovated or at least updated. There seems to be a pride of ownership in this apartment that sometimes is lacking in units down at this price point. At $179,000, your monthly would be $859. The maintenance is $674. If you're looking for more space and a place that doesn't need to be gutted you should take a look at this co-op. Prices have come down all over, but I'm still not sure who can afford the $650K two bedrooms that have been slashed to a half million in Brooklyn. This Bronx hood is a nice option for working class folk.
Beyond the Zoo and the Garden you'd be near Pelham Parkway itself, which serves as a nice stretch of green space for the nabe. There's some shopping on White Plains Road. For foodies, there's great Italian grub just over in Morris Park, or on the other side of Bronx Park on Arthur Avenue.
Transportation is nice with the 2/5 stop at Pelham Parkway and White Plains Road.
