Pelham Parkway is along the 2/5 trains. Pelham Bay is along the 6 train and is also the setting of the new remake of Pelham Bay..1,2,3

My understanding is that Pelham Parkway's eastern border is past Muliner Ave. (further east would be Morris Park) and its western border is at the Bronx River Parkway. Further north and south, I'm not entirely certain. I've been here for almost a year, and I still haven't quite figured that out yet. I remember reading somewhere that Pelham Parkway (the road) is the northern border, but that seems a little too low. Allerton Road, maybe?

I can say, however, that PP is in the East Bronx. It is mostly Hispanic, but there's also a prominent Albanian population as well, along with a few Italians and Jewish people. The further east you are south of the Parkway, the nicer the area gets (fewer tenements, more private houses), but I'm not all that far from White Plains Rd, and haven't had any problems.

actually, according to the US Postal service the postal zones for Morris Park and Pelham Pkwy areas don't exist. For "Pelham Pkwy" areas it's 10467(Williamsbridge PO), 10469 (BaychesterPO) and 10462(ParkchesterPO) and for Morris park it's 10462 and 10461(WestchesterPO)

That doesn't matter. Where I live my zip is 10453 and thats the Morris Heights zip code....and I'm in University Heights. Across the street from me is the 10468 zip code and thats still University Heights. Zip codes have nothing to do with neighborhood boundaries.

Think about Westchester also much of it is cheaper and easier commute. Also Safe and many different towns & schools.
All the best!

Not sure about the schools, but there's a Key Food on the corner of Lydig and Holland Aves., and a C-Town on White Plains Rd. just north of the Parkway. There are a few vegetable markets here and there as well, and there's a health food store on White Plains Rd. that sells organic groceries and the like.
