This is just the usual nonsense again. Of course Morrisania is South Bronx and very much so.

People exaggerate so much on here. It's not far from the train and although it has it's problems, not like your moving there. The vast majority of nonsense that occurs around there is among people that know one another. Involved in the "ghetto" lifestyle.

If it's super cheap then why not. Hundreds of thousands of different kinds of people live in those neighborhoods. Normal lives without issue.

I recommend you to also visit Arthur Ave/E 187th St in Belmont for food if you do decide to stay in the Bronx. Very good Italian restaurants.

Sobro, morrisania is the south bronx in any definition, lay off the pipe.

And rlrl, that area around vyse and the 170s was about as bombed out as it got. Hell it was still a wasteland well into the 90's
When this guy post anything associated with Mott Haven I laugh my socks off. Can never forget the day I used to escort ladies down to Jerome avenue for safety on Burnside ave. From bruckner boulevard, going up along sedgwick going to fordhan road down southern boupevard or sheridan expresssway and anything caught in between these triangulations is the geographic South Bronx, including university Heights. I miss that area.

i remember travelling down Jerome Ave in the 1970's to see a Yankee game, from the Cross Bronx down thru 172, 170th, abandoned tenements everywhere but when it turned into River Ave it got a little better

Maybe they wanted to keep the stadium area somewhat decent for biz purposes.

Belmont is also within the boundaries of South Bronx.
