I kinda like it to, but I would love a few more trees in the streets.

Great photography, but you know you're in a terrible neighbourhood when there are bars on the windows

It's a shame too, because some of the old architecture is beautiful.

New York, in general, lacks green in the winter. Hey, it's winter, that's expected. There's some nice tenements in there.

Thats my neighborhood right there. Mount Eden Pkwy, 174th street, Grand Concourse, Weeks Av, Tremont Av... Not the best place in the world, but i been here for years and you quite get used to it. Its nice here, not as dangerous as some people think. Of course, there is always the undesirable people, but the majority are not harmful.

Not as bad as you might expect. However, most of this apartments are rented, and the building owners take the precaution to place bars in the 1st floor windows to avoid potential burglaries, but those bars have probably been there from the times when the Bronx was much more heated than today.

I gave it enough thought, and if i ever get the chance to live in new york for a while, this is definetly my #1 neighborhood choice (that i'm sure is affordable)...

ChiTown: you actually like the fact that there's less greenery in those shots? That's one of the things I love about Chicago -- it's that there is so much greenery on the side streets, especially in residential neighborhoods. The setbacks with the grass next the curb, and the corner lots with the extra patch of grass/trees on the side make a hugely appealing aesthetic difference to me.

Oh well, to each his own.

Can't argue with you about East Tremont though, it is one of the nicer/nicest parts of the Bronx.

^Not saying its a bad thing, but imo chicago over does it a little too much. The setbacks are too far back in places like the bungalow belt, making it feel really suburban. Then top that off with a full grown tree in front of each property . I wouldn't mind if it was a characteristic of a few neighborhoods here and there, but every hood? How many neighborhoods do we have with no greenery? None. I'm not surprised though considering half the urban planners board are suburbanites and daley is a huge supporter of the tree initiative (as if we seriously need that many trees. what about the new exurbs?)

Rant over....
