Some of ya'll have funny comments considering you probably been there all of one time in your life and it was 10 years ago.
You actually walk on 3rd?

My cut off point is Melrose Ave. I dont even like walking on Cortland when i go to that area.
Every back to school year i have to drop off or pick up a family member from Cookies as i refuse to get them from Youngland.

Also when the Clocktower over on Lincoln Ave was advertising lofts, but in reality they were just studios that cost as much as my Lower East Side studio at the time, wtf.

South Bronx needs something more than just Starbucks.
Thatís called draw... which outside of the stadium, the botanical garden, bx zoo, the bx doesnít have

the bx needs itís own museum mile when the time is right

I think Port Morris specifically the bruckner blvd area is the draaaaaw because itís a nice quiet little strip removed from the projects. You got fresh direct and fed ex stationed near there as well

they have got to do somethin about the killbrook projects. the senior housing which they put up on killbrooks grounds looks nice

I think Starbucks has been on Fordham Rd for 5 or 6 years. It's done zilch.

I think the days of Starbucks being any kind of a barometer of gentrification ended years ago.
Exactly!


Call me when a Sweetgreens opens up in Bronx; now *that* would be news of gentrification.

Nasty and over priced coffee, ditto for their "drinks", and ever SB has become a de facto combination senior, after school, homeless center combo "WeWork" location. You can have it.

Whatever upscale gentrifying or whatever image SB had died long ago. Now they are just like Mikey D's, this or a place to find a free public bathroom. At least McD's makes you buy something first.

Fordham is too far from Midtown Manhattan to be influenced by the right people to move there and change it for the better.

Im not understanding your comment. your saying if they want it to remain as crappy as it is now that they should buy something in the area? The reason 3rd ave is so hood is because it is surrounded by projects. After school it becomes the main hub for kids to hang out due to many travel lines cross there. Its a recipe for trouble. I use to be one of those kids hanging around there during the Funcoland days.

Iím sure the same will occur at this new location.

Overpriced burnt-tasting coffee. I prefer the local coffee shops here on Staten Island. At home I drink Gevalia bold roast coffees.

On every thread lately you seem to be telling people to buy. Just because you plan on buying in the next year does not mean everyone cares to buy. I will never buy, I like the renting life and not being tied down. I lived in some fantastic places and some not so but I wouldn't trade any of it to be locked into one apt for the rest of my life. **** mine as well just pack up and move to the burbs then
