Kingsbridge and Marble Hill are safe neighborhoods with a lot of families but, depending on your daughter's age, you should take into consideration the quality of the public schools.

Kingsbridge. West of Broadway, north of 231 is arguably the best area in the Bronx outside of Riverdale. Served by the 50th pct it is the safest area in the Bronx and most of NYC.

Other great areas I would consider of you can't afford it are Pelham bay, Pelham parkway, Woodlawn and norwood. In that order.

Best is quite subjective

Agreed.

OP, where do you work? That would be helpful. Not all Bronx neighborhoods are convenient to everywhere, so knowing where you need to go can help with recommendations.

Thank you for all the replies, I honestly thought no one would respond. I now see that this is an active online community . So according to all of the replies, here is a list of areas i should be looking into:

1. Morris Park
2. Belmont/ little Italy------ Hellupinharlem this sounds convenient. thanks
3. Pelham Bay
4. Throggs Neck
5. Kingsbridge
6. Bedford Park -----Fmathew5876 good school is always a plus. thanks for the recommendation.
7. Van Cortland village
8. Norwood

Now to make my life easier can we agree on the top 3 areas from this list, that I should go directly into. NO no Legionnaires or moving to Astoria.

In my opinion I think Legionnaires disease has already spread to all of the cooling towers in the Bronx
Thank you all again.

So commute into city an issue then. I would center your search on the neighborhoods in the list above that are closest to the hospital. I'm not 100% where that VA is (I'm an East Bronx girl).

Based upon your work I would look into
Kingsbridge
Bedford Park

Will make for an easy commute for you. You may even be able to walk and save your money that you could invest in spending a little more in rent. $1300 I don't think is do-able, closer to the $1500-$1600 range. But those may be the bottom of the barrel apartments in not the best buildings. I'd say $1500-$1800 should land you something nice.
Now I don't have children so I can't tell you about good schools in the area or safety issues.
