Luckily ,I don't have a car so I don't have to deal with the parking except occasionally. I live in a part of the neighborhood though (North of Pelham Parkway and next to the Botanical Garden) where it really doesn't seem that bad .If you get home and park a car by 7:00 or 8:00 pm there seems to be no problem.The later it gets,the more difficult.During thee day it's wide open.You can come and go anywhere.
I think the situation is much worse South of the parkway and to the West of White Plains Road.

Anyway,I'm two blocks from the subway or busses in every direction so I don't need one.

Funny,1020 Grand Concourse has grown on me over the years.At one time I thought it was hideous but I looked at apartments there a few years ago and I now realize that it is actually a lavishly constructed period ( 60's) piece.Luckily,it weathered the storm of the 80's and 90's pretty well and is almost like going into a museum now.Hope they don't decide to mess around with the lobby or any of the public spaces !

I am a Bronx native Clay Avenue section. I moved to Westchester when I was a kid with my parents to Y.O or Yonkers. I have been there ever since. I like because its close to the Bronx but hate it because it tries to be like the Bronx. So any chance I get I go to E.187th St. and Aurthur Ave to get "real Cannoli's" from Egidio's or a place two blocks down that's a little bigger. I love the Bronx and I think that I will move back because Westchester is not NYC.

You should also check out the Van Courtlandt/Sedgwick area. Kingsbridge with its high hills is beautiful too. The Bx IS a beautiful borough for those who really want to explore it. So underrated
