"Essentially located to all needs"
I lived on East 167th Street in the Bronx with my parents for approximately 20 years. You can say that I grew up there. My parents still reside there and I go back there at least twice a month to visit them. This is a street that used to be very badly constructed, falling down houses, rodent infected. It was nothing for us to look out of our window at night and see hugh rats running up and down the street. Today however, due to new construction of houses and condominiums on my old block and in the surrounding area, it has become a beautiful place to live. On the main street (167th) which runs parallel to the Grandconcourse, there are many new business (grocery stores, check cashing stores, hardware stores, etc.) I no longer worry about my dad getting up every morning at 6am to go out and get the newspaper for my mom. It has become a safe place to live and they are still building in the area.
