Thatís exactly what I was going to say before putting Eastchester lol.

Ethnic wise it makes sense since Jamaicans dominate area. Over 50% of those areas are Jamaican alone!

Right, heavily Jamaican and heavily black in general, but Wakefield and Williamsbridge seem to have a growing Hispanic population, though. The Bronx seems to be the borough where Hispanics move everywhere, almost every neighborhood is at least 10% Hispanic and usually much more than that.

I looked through Belmont and I'm happy that it has more surviving original architecture than the South Bronx, but there are way too many Fedders houses for my liking. I wonder if in this case, they mostly replaced burned out buildings, or if developers bought out vacant rowhomes and demolished them to put Fedders houses in their place.

Fordham U built a lot of really ugly student housing in Belmont too. It's a real shame because they do beautiful constructuon on campus. Off-campus, they do everything as cheap as they n.

I doubt Belmont had any burnt out buildings.

I was wondering if some of those were Fordham University buildings! Some of them say things like "Fordham Housing" on them.

If I'm not mistaken, Belmont had some burnt out buildings in the Southeast portion, but maybe that's considered Tremont

And what is with those beige/pink buildings? They look so soulless, like cheaply made office buildings.

It's a shame Belmont has all those Fedders houses, between the Fordham University presence, surviving Italian businesses, and thriving Latin American community, it seems like it's a neighborhood that's above receiving the lowest form of architecture known to man.

I'm not sure which pink buildings, is one on Arthur just north of 187? I can't remember what was there before.

I'm sure Fordham's presence on Belmont has had some positive impact, but not aesthetically!

No not that one, that one doesn't look too bad. I was referring to the beige and pink building found in various parts of The Bronx, like this one. I believe this is considered Belmont
