Wow, thats actually really surprising that they would mention this neighborhood. I've driven thru there and the neighborhood is actually quite nice. I liked the atmosphere in the section up by Van Cortland Park.

The price they list, 900k, for a home seems way out of wack though. A 3/4br in a decent neighborhood of the North Bronx usually goes for $450-600k

My dad used to live there. While it was shady at the time, it wasn't gunshots-in-the-night bad. Yet it does seem strange to me that a neighborhood in the Bronx, or any neighborhood for that matter, would be considered "hot right now." A neighborhood can be attractive, nice, friendly...but "hot"? Sounds like we're talking about fashion or something. Real estate is funny.

I moved out of NYC about 8 yrs ago, I thought Kingsbridge was still a "free fire zone" Up by Van Courtland always was a nice area and a little further north toward McClean Ave, Yonkers, east of the Major deagan is also very nice. Over on the other side of the Bronx, east of I 95 there is Pelham Bay, Country Club and Throggs Neck but I doubt you will find a decent house in that area for under 750K. Rowhouse type town houses near the water are selling for about 1.2 mil ! Da' east Bronx, whowuddatunk............

Woodlawn and Morris Park are still reasonably cheap. I've seen 3br rowhouses in Morris Park selling in the 400's.

What do they consider "Kingsbridge Heights"? Is that the 190's btween The Grand Concourse and the Deegan of even further west?

It seems that the areas being rejuvinated are all pretty close to the subway and this area is somewhat distant from them. I could see Marble Hill or Bedford Park become the next hot spot before this.

Mapquest labels Kingsbridge Heights as the area under the Jerome Reservoir north of Kingsbridge Road. But the article mentioned that it was close to Van Cortlandt Park, and that area is pretty far away from the park. Sedgwick Ave. west of the reservoir has huge trees and beautiful houses, but seems kind of far away from public transportation-you have to go around the water to get to the 4 and down the hill and over the Major Deegan to get the 1. I don't know where they are talking about.

bumping because I'd like to hear more about this neighborhood

I'm not sure exactly what the boundaries are considered to be since it's not recognized by Google Maps

You guys need to check out this block - Davidson Avenue between West 192nd Street and Kingsbridge Road. Some sick houses on that block - both sides of the street. I'm sure any one of those houses can get 3 quarter mil easy.
