"West of the major Deegan is the best! Little NYC secret"
Kingsbridge is huge. So, I cant tell you much about east of the Major Deegan. Frankly I think it's a completely different neighborhood when one croses a major interstate highway. However, west of the highway towards Riverdale is in my opinion is one of the best kept secrets in New York City real estate. A friend from work and his wife recently moved to a new luxury building on 231st and Corlear and they couldn't be happier with the building and the area. The area is moderately being gentrified but by smart middle class young professionals of all races like my friend and his wife. Because of the recent developments, new small businesses have been opening up. The very popular Bronx Ale House comes to mind. It reminds me of how Williamsburg was at the start of it's transition but instead of hipsters moving in, it's young professionals who have been priced out of Manhattan.
