Listing of the Day: Grand Concourse Rental

E. 167th Street and Grand Concourse, 1 Bedroom - $905/month

This apartment gave the ole BoogieDowner pause when I looked at the pics. I'm a sucker for sunny apartments with original archways and weird built-in shelf things (look closely on the left side of the first pic). The hardwood/parquet floors look pretty well maintained too.

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 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 too all the way down on 153rd Street.

Alas, the rush hour D train doesn't stop at 161/Yankee Stadium. It's express between Manhattan 145 to Tremont.

Thanks for the correction on that - we'll update the post.
