You're right about the HS students using the Mosholu stop. Maybe the Woodlawn and Mosholu stops should be switched around. Not sure.

Woodlawn
Mosholu
Bedford Park
What? That area is a little bit rough around the edges near Woodlawn station, but I wouldn't call it seedy by any stretch of the imagination.

I take the bus there all the time and never have any problems.

SuperWario:

The Northern Border of Hunts Point is Westchester Avenue, The Bronx River to the East, the East River to the South, and Prospect Ave to the West. Prospect ave is the border. Longwood does not go to 167..nor does it cross Westchester Ave. Longwood is the specific subsection of Longwood that is from the Bruckner West to Prospect Ave station...it encompasses the brownstones around that area.

Simpson Street is also on the border (westchester ave) of Hunts Point...so it straddles Hunts Point, as does Prospect Ave...all depends which side of the street you are on. Prospect Avenue also seperates Longwood (Hunts POint) from Mott Haven.

It's much nicer farther south (closer to Montifiore), but going further north it changes. That abandoned building doesn't help. I never see abandoned buildings in New York anymore...Maybe that's why you see less maintenance in general around there which gives the area a seedy atmosphere.

Pete around me there are still a few, maybe a handful, but just about all have been converted to affordable housing...which has been a big plus for the area.

Which abandoned building? You mean next to the Dancing school? The bar next to the bus stop plays their music a little bit loud at night, but beyond that I honestly can't find any fault with that block.
