Once I see a Whole Foods market rear its ugly head, I'll know the "change" is complete.

Calm down. I recently lived there and it's still definitely Black/Hispanic dominant. A place can't completely gentrify.

Wait. Gentrification is bad? Must a place remain a ghetto forever and ever?

As I said to a friend "The Bronx is the last untouched borough" whether people like it or not. Investors are buying up buildings, renovating them- adding perks, lowering the rent just enough to appeal to those who can't afford Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens.

My boyfriend and I are moving into one. The one that we saw on Buchanan Pl (near 183rd, 4 train stop) was gorgeous but not enough to ignore my safety. First impression was great, second impression was not. So we settled on one closer to Fordham Road (still by the 4 train) but I didn't feel threatened when I was there each time.

Gentrification will take time but it will happen.

When the local public schools start to score well, that's when I'll believe it.

You're right....they can't touch NYCHA, which is great. You just won't be able to afford anything around it except those two corner stores that will stay open because those will be the only 2 corner stores people from NYCHA can go to. Go read about Gowanus Houses, perfect example of what I'm talking about. Prolly the only NYCHA I know of that is within walking distance of a MAC make-up store and a French restaurant.

You stay tuned tho

Lol this again, huh? I really don't understand this particular talking point. You and a couple others on here do this. Broski, I drive the side streets 4-5 times a week around there to drop my girl off and pick her up at a hospital that she works at. Those neighborhoods are absolute p!ssholes, and it does not seem to be drastically changing any time soon. Sure there a couple of sketchily built condo buildings that were thrown up in different spots. Big freakin deal. A few (literally a few) non-ghetto restaurants down by bruckner blvd geared towards yups? Perhaps. It really means nothing, particularly when you're speaking of "the south bronx" in general. Place is an absolute dump. Even if there is a chipotle somewhere. Like that is some sort of benchmark for the peak of gentrification. I am still laughing about that one.
