I wish the MTA would hurry up and tidy-up 205th Street Station, though. (OT: why is it "205th Street" station? 204th is the major strip there. 205th is just a side-street.)

Mediocre is a pretty good term for the Bx16.

LOL! I actually got off that stop yesterday and was somewhat... hmmm... amazed by the amount of stairs from platform to street.

Think MTA might put in an elevator (similar to the one on the A line @ 207th)?

Yeah I know...wishful thinking...

I'm actually leaving Inwood (east of Broadway) for the Bedford Park Area (Briggs Ave / Valentine Ave). I noticed similarities (as well as differences)between the two locations... but for economical reasons, I'm Bronx bound.

The Bedford Pk area you speak of is quieter and more suburban in feel than Inwood

Yes, that was one of the 'differences'. Similarities were around Bainbridge Avenue / 204th... shopping, teens here and there... reminds me of Dyckman Street (but less dense).

Is Mosholu Parkway safe to walk around early morning / day time for strolls, jogging? I stopped going to Inwood Hill Park after a while cause it got a bit...seedy...

I bought my Bike at Tread bike shop on Dyckman St west of bway. That section reminds me of Bedford Pk.

I would imagine that Mosh Pkwy is safe the further away from Jerome Ave you get. Right on the intersections of Van Cortlandt Ave, Bainbridge and Marion Ave(they all have traffic lights) they all look quite safe.

Default A good way...

to find out about safety on MP is perhaps to call the 52 pct and ask an officer. The only thing is that since they really don't know who they are talking to, they may hesitate to tell you anything negative

I used to live near Jerome ages ago...so I agree with your suggestion

Thanks for your help...!

That is very true on Mosholu Pkwy. If you're west of Jerome, you would have to deal with the undesirables coming out of Clinton High School and the infamous Tracey Towers.
