The media doesn't show everything, and just b/c there is a shooting doesn't necessarily make it a bad place to be in.

It is sort of a quiet neighborhood. Except for Fordham Road which is a couple of blocks south and is the shopping mecca of this neighborhood as well as for others. Those streets can be pack with shoppers.

Thanks for the rest of the nice comments everyone.

I remember visiting this place. I had a huge paper street map of all 5 boroughs (before amazing map websites on the net existed) and made it a point to visit different spots beyond Manhattan. I noticed the so-called Grand Concourse on the map so I took the subway there. I don't remember if the stretch I visited was within the neighborhood or area you show but I remember it a lot like this. I like seeing very urban major arterials and this one definitely is major and very urban. NYC is definitely among the few US cities where going out this far from the heart of the city (Midtown in Manhattan, roughly) is this urban and dense.

I just read on Wiki that it was designed by an Alsatian (Alsace in France) engineer. Too bad he did not design such a grand arterial for the Seine-Saint-Denis which I call "the Bronx of Paris". Actually the Seine-Saint-Denis does have 3 avenues radiating into Paris (N2, N3 and D115) but neither is anywhere as grand as the Grand Concourse of The Bronx.
