"Not too thrilling of a neighborhood"

University Heights is the sort of standard low income neighborhood that you see in the Bronx. It is a pretty population dense area, making it all the more depressing of a place. There of course isn’t much to do for tourists in low income neighborhoods – there isn’t even much for the residents to do in this sort of neighborhood. The landscape is one filled with tenement housing that reach about six or so stories in the air – it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing place. I wouldn’t recommend this neighborhood for resident or tourist, and hopefully you’re not considering it.
