Safety in the South Bronx  (14 Answers)

My boy friend and I will be staying in the S. Bronx for three nights leading up to New Years. Reading all of the information on here I'm starting to get a little worried. My boy friend is a dark skinned Italian/Puerto Rican and I am a super light skinned blonde that weighs about 105lbs. Anyone have any tips or advice that will keep us from getting into trouble. Are the metros considered safe during the day or should we take taxis everywhere we go? Are there certain streets or areas we should absolutely avoid?
I'd also love to know if there are certain places that you recommend we see; restaurants, sites etc.
Thanks

Getting from LGA to Lafayette Ave/White Plains Rd, Bronx  (3 Answers)

What's the best option (transportation wise) to take from LGA to Lafayette Ave/White Plains Rd, Bronx area? A friend and I have never been to that area and don't want to be completely clueless. I'm debating if I want to deal with the subway/bus system or just take a cab straight from the airport considering that I will have to lug some luggage around. Also, can someone advise me about the area? I'm planning on staying with a friend for a few days and spend the rest in the city. Does the buses have enough space for luggage or is it just certain ones?

Any and all advice would greatly be appreciated. :D Thanks!

241 St Wakefield

Hi,

I need to take the 2 train to Wakefield-241 Street /White Plains Road - the last stop in the Bronx. It seems to have a negative reputation. How safe is it here? and how late can you be around this area?

Thanks,

Buying house in Bronx

I'm planning to buy a house in the Bronx, NY area. I'm Asian, with two kids both of which are in the school age. I would appreciate very much anyone who could recommend a place in the Bronx area which matches my requirements as follows: (a) good neighborhood, (b) accesibility to public transportations,e.g., sub-way, buses, (c) accessibility to school, hospital, and groceries. (d) accesibility to church. I don't have much knowledge about the Bronx area. Aside from Riverdale area, any recommendation of other good places to raise a family in the Bronx area would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your kind help.

a safe area  (2 Answers)

Hi. Would anyone know if East 182nd Street is a safe area? I noticed most everyone had bars on the doors and windows, but whenever I visited, 2 people who live there told me that they never encountered any problems. Anyone know for sure? There's St. Barnabus hosp. on one corner; a school on the other and a senior citizen complex across the street, and a day care center on the other side of the house.

Area around Jacobi and Montifieore Hospitals safe?  (3 Answers)

As I would be moving from abroad, I would like the aviod the hassle of buying a car. My question is, is the area around these two hospitals safe enough for me to take the metro at all hours? I am particularly concerned about walking to the metro stops in the dark. My working hours will be quite varied: like 5am-11pm (or later). I like to think I have good street smarts, I lived in Philly for 13 years. Thanks ahead for any info!
