    Is Walton Ave., Bronx safe?

    Advertisements



    I have a 6 week rotation in Bronx and was looking into apartments there. I found a few month-by-month leases on Walton Ave. and Featherbed lane... close to Grand Concourse. Just wondering if those are good neighbourhoods... should I even bother looking at places that close to the hospital? From what I've read, the neighbourhoods around the hospital are crime-ridden?

    That whole area is really rough, But for 6 weeks, what else is there? It is hard to find a 6 week rental in NY. I had the same problem and ended up living by Fordham road. Anything is doable, though. Maybe visit and see if you feel safe? Everyone has different comfort levels; I was fine at Fordham, but some others would have been scared to death...
