Dangerous Areas of North Bronx

I have no clue. I don't like the Bronx that much (Only when I have Yankees tickets is when I go) It just feels weird over there.

Well...I looked up PS 85 and I got a 2400 Marion Ave address, which would be 187th & Marion. To me it's a transitional area...it's right between bad and good -- in other words it's OK. Anyways I'm sure someone who is more familar w/ that part of BX will slide a comment. In the meantime...you could check out Inside Schools. They have reviews of all the NYC public schools. Here is the link to their review of PS 85: P.S. 85 School Review

Man, that's my old turf back in the early 90s. I lived across the street from P.S. 85. There are a few downsides. You're close to the Fordham Road stores, so parking and noise are pretty big issues. Also, not only do the stores create noise and parking, but so do the nearby residents, especially in the summertime.

The upsides about the area are pretty much the same as the downsides, the stores and the amount of people. In addition, the (D) train is a few blocks uphill on 188th and Grand Concourse (the Fordham Road station).

What is PSBXE???
I have roots in the Bronx and I have never heard that term.
Alas, much of the Bronx has gone in a bad direction in the last 40 years there are still a few nice areas.

Other than David Berkowitz - The Son of Sam Killer - there have never been any freaky serial killer type crimes in the Bronx.

But Edgar Allen Poe wrote "Annabelle Lee" while living in the Bronx.
His cottage is preserved in Poe Park.

Son of Sam A.K.A. David Berkowitz did not live in the Bronx. He lived in Westchester County.
