Co-Op City is looking like a strong choice for the middle class. If I was from the Bronx that's where I might have been living now.

True.The only missing link right now is the transportation.If they put in a metro north stop as planned it will make it an even more attractive option.

They should have done a subway connection when they built co op city.It would have been so easy to extend the 6.It's only about a mile I think.I heard they didn't do it because in those days people were more attracted to areas without subways because of the crime that subways supposedly brought in.The developers thought it was more attractive to not have a subway connection.Big mistake!

Who needs another Macy's, put a Walmart as an anchor store.

I HOPE it is on a subway stop, otherwise it will be no use to me.

Walmart doesn't like to play with others. They always want their OWN presence. Yeah, another Mall-Macy's is not very exciting.

I agree. It doesn't seem to be near a subway stop. Location on Google Maps The nearest stop seems to be the last stop on the 6, and too complicated to get to for this non-Bronx person. (Or the first stop, depending on how you look at it)

The article mentions Manhattan Mall as a success. I would disagree. I would say mixed results at best. For much of its existence a substantial chunk of it has been empty. They've especially have had a lot of trouble filling the upper floors. Apparently city dwellers don't have the patience to go up more than a few floors in a mall.

As for this development it's good. More business coming to the Bronx is something I would never be against, but something like this probably would have been much more useful and beneficial to the borough in another part. The Kingsbridge Armory coming to mind but we all know how that ended. I agree with some other posters that Macy's being the flagship is a bit ho hum.

The closest subway stop is really the 6 at Pelham Bay, but then you have to take a bus..no bueno! I think at some point extending the 6 to Co-op city, or at least to this specific Bay Plaza shopping district will be a necessity when this is built. As it is now, the traffic there is horrendous, and once this mall is open, the gridlock will be completely intolerable.

Agreed. The people who live in co-op city will love this mall though...
