Terribly developed, part of the reason as to why it is constant grid lock through there. There seriously should be a bus only lane from there to the Parkchester 6 train station. Such a waste of land on the west side of White Plains Road too, that needs serious redevelopment, east side is okay and newer. Tear down the huge K-Mart, Key Food, Toys R Us, build on the sidewalk and include rooftop parking like across the street or even better underground with residential property above. Terrible land use.
Crime wise it's a mixed bag, it attracts a lot of low lives from the nearby PJ's (Not to say everyone from the PJ's is a low life but...). Still like anywhere else in the city don't leave your wallet on a counter and expect to find it when you come back. I wouldn't worry about robbery much as the area is well policed and there is no reason to wonder into the nearby projects.
