"Bedford Park, Bronx NYC is okay..don't expect it to be Manhattan!!!"

Bedford Park is in the northern part of the Bronx in NYC. For those who are not familiar with the Bronx I personally consider it to be one of the better areas of the Bronx. It's no Manhattan so don't expect the glitz. If you are use to pristine streets, classy high rises and a suburban appearance this area may not be for you. The rents in this area as for much of the Bronx are lower than most areas in NYC.

There are not a lot of eateries mainly just small local businesses. Usually if I wanted to go shopping I would take the B, D or 4 trains to Fordham Road where there are LOTS of places to shop and eat.
I actually attended Lehman College which is located in this neighborhood and transportation is okay especially during rush hour—the 4, D and B service the area. I have attended classes in the evening…there are usually people out so I have never felt afraid…but I am a Native New Yorker ….so my advice would be to be alert to your surroundings at all times.

There are parks nearby, Jerome Park is one of them and local buses will take you to both the NY Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo if you are looking for something to do or want to experience some nature.
