Welcome to another of my NYC neighborhood tours! This is Bedford Park. Located on the North section of the Bronx. This is a diverse working class neighborhood. The tallest towers in the Bronx are located here. They are called the Tracey Towers and are both 41 floors. Please enjoy my tour! :)


Bedford Park, Bronx

Bedford Park is a neighborhood in the borough of the Bronx in New York City bounded by Mosholu Parkway to the north, Bronx Park and Webster Avenue to the east, 194th Street and Kingsbridge Road to the south, and Goulden Avenue to the west. It borders the neighborhoods of Norwood, Fordham, and Kingsbridge.

As a low-rise residential neighborhood, Bedford Park has a "skyline" of mostly five-story walkups. The most noticeable exception to this are the Tracey Towers, two 41-story apartment buildings close to the Jerome Park Reservoir. Designed by noted architect Paul Rudolph, they were completed in 1972 as a part of New York City's Mitchell Lama housing development initiative, aimed at allowing moderate-to-middle income families to stay in the area.
