I have a friend that does that. They throw EVERYTHING in the damn dryer. If I did that with my dress shirts, they'd all be up my back. The only that's tricky to fold are bed sheets and those damn fitters for the mattress. The rest is a piece of cake. The newer machines even have a steam setting so it reduces wrinkles.
Same, I actually enjoying doing my laundry.

Compared to Manhattan it is. I find parts of Country Club stunning. No sidewalks, charming tree lined streets. It definitely feels like you're in a Country Club, going back to when the area was part of Westchester. Even City Island looks great, even though it has tacky seafood places. I think I'm going to book a trip over there in October when it's still warm but not too hot this way I can take a stroll without all of the people.

Hard to believe this is in the Bronx (Country Club Road, Country Club, Bronx, NY):

It seems that Kingsbridge and Riverdale are getting a few new spots.

Kingsbridge:
Kingsbridge Social Club

Riverdale:
The Hill
Buunni Coffee
My block in Unionport/Castle Hill has lots of traffic on a school day. Yet once school is out its deserted. I have sat outside on a weekday during the summer and counted a dozen people walk by all day. Its great. Not typical but great for me.

I've walked down some streets north of the Bruckner that are nice like Pugsley Avenue. What area is that called? Is it Unionport? Too far north it deteriorates quickly though as you approach Parkchester.

Unionport or Castle Hill. I live off Castle Hill Ave, but Im in Unionport. People just call it all Castle Hill. Very convenient area. Im ajacent to four highways, three bridges, an express bus, the q44 to Queens, the 6 train, and several MTA buses.

Do people in Castle Hill generally identify with Castle Hill, or is it like Wakefield where most people call it a street name (Gun Hill)?

And Castle Hill seems like a good area for those who want an area that still feels like The Bronx, but toned down.
