That's believable because most of the neighborhood is intact

West of Broadway is a lot greener, and having so much green space so close is wonderful. West of Broadway is also a lot hillier. East of Broadway could use some tree plantings for sure.

Me too. They all feel very New York.

I don't particularly care for urban environments because they are usually dirty and lack green space. Inwood West of Broadway is a good mix while still maintaining an urban setting.

BP is a lovely neighborhood and would be in any city.

The Bronx had a few courts that were left desolate by the City, one on 163 off of Third and an other closer to Tremont or Claremont, if I recall correctly. Why wouldn't the City have made something useful with it ?
