E Kingsbridge is actually one of my fav neighborhoods in the Bronx. My cousin lives there and we meet up there often to go hang out and stuff. Most areas of it are pretty clean. Of course you'll find the occasional graffiti stained buildings but all and all it's a nice place. There are a few good shops there and a handful of good restaurants. I just like it cause it seems like a friendly area and the people people much keep to themselves and you dont have beggers coming up to you out of the blue asking for spare change. I know the building my cousin lives in is pretty quiet, not a lot of parties or loud noises, fights, anything like that. I wouldnt mind living there.
