"If you want to live in countryside and still be in the city"
If you want to live in countryside and still be in the city, this is the best option for you. Most of the houses (beautiful houses) here are very expensive compared to the rest of the Bronx but very affordable compared to the overpriced Brooklyn homes (which are less attractive).. The streets are safe and quiet. You might need a car to live here but there is also bus and the 6 train station a few minutes away. Its closeness to the park and the beach is its advantage
