Woodlawn for less than $100K is pretty nice. When I saw the price I was expecting a studio instead of a one bedroom. It's not huge at 650 square feet, but it's also not a shoebox by any stretch of the imagination. This isn't a bad starter apartment for those looking to ditch roommates and non-equity building rent.
Here's the Woodlawn bit again:
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. Our favorites are Rory Dolan's (technically in Yonkers) on McLean Avenue and the Rambling House on Katonah Ave (funny story about the Rambling House and my daughter's baptism, but that's one to be told over a pint). The shepherd's pie and other Irish specialties are can't misses.
The people in Woodlawn are super-friendly (hey, a lot of them are happy drunks, I guess). Obviously St. Patty's Day is not to missed up here. You'd have some shopping up and down Katonah and McLean Avenues.
From this side of the hood you'd be able to access easily the Woodlawn Metro-North stop for a quick commute to Manhattan. Otherwise, it's a bus to the 4 train on the other side of the cemetery.
