Listing of the Day: Grand Concourse Rental at a Scamingly Low Rent

167th and Grand Concourse, 2 Bedroom - $1,175/month

This apartment seems crazy cheap for the location and size, so I wouldn't surprised if you got a reply from a Nigerian prince looking for you to wire him the security deposit as a response. But it's worth a shot I guess? Only one listing pic makes it even more suspicious, though.

The hood has got some stuff going for it. You'd be close to the Bronx Museum of the Arts in this unit, which is currently running an exhibition about the Grand Concourse's centennial. You'd also be close to Yankee Stadium (if you could ever afford tickets) and Joyce Kilmer Park. There's some shopping down near 161st and along Walton.

To be honest, this is just a pretty sensible apartment (with a shockingly low rent) that looks well maintained and is in a decent and improving hood. The transportation is pretty nice. You have the D at 167th (and the 4 at 167th to the east). The Yankee Stadium Metro North is a little far south for this apartment, but it's there if you need it all the way down on 153rd Street.

Clicking on the link takes you to an ad for an Astoria apartment, there is no Bronx option. Looks like a scam to get you to look at Queens instead. Boo! Hiss!
