Most Expensive Bronx Neighborhoods
Bronx is a very large coastal borough (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New York. With a population of 1,438,159 people and 339 constituent neighborhoods, Bronx is the fourth largest community in New York.
Housing costs in Bronx are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in New York.
Unlike some boroughs where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Bronx is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bronx is a borough of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Bronx who work in office and administrative support (14.26%), sales jobs (10.23%) and healthcare suport services (7.95%).
Bronx is one of the most attractive larger cities for people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. This makes it a good place to live for young singles in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting their professional careers. Although Bronx is a large city, this demographic is significant enough that young professionals will find many others like themselves here, with really good opportunities for friendships, recreation, romance, and more.
Bronx is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
One downside of living in Bronx is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Bronx, the average commute to work is 40.48 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the borough, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative. In addition, it is also a pedestrian-friendly borough. Many of Bronx’s neighborhoods are dense enough and have amenities close enough together that people find it feasible to get around on foot.
One of the benefits of being a big city like Bronx is having a public transportation system, but in Bronx the transit system is the mode of choice for lots of people getting to and from work every day. You will find many people using the subway for their daily commute, even though other transportation options exist. If you ask these commuters, many will tell you that not having to drive in the snarl of big city traffic is one of main reasons for leaving the car at home, or even not owning a car at all. With so many people taking the subway Bronx benefits from a reduction in air pollution and traffic.
In terms of college education, Bronx is nearly on par with the US average for all cities of 21.84%: 18.31% of adults 25 and older in Bronx have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.
The per capita income in Bronx in 2010 was $18,269, which is low income relative to New York, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $73,076 for a family of four. However, Bronx contains both very wealthy and poor people as well. Bronx also has one of the higher rates of people living in poverty in the nation, with 30.47% of its population below the federal poverty line.
Bronx is an extremely ethnically-diverse borough. The people who call Bronx home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. People of Hispanic or Latino origin are the most prevalent group in Bronx, accounting for 54.30% of the borough’s residents (people of Hispanic or Latino origin can be of any race). The greatest number of Bronx residents report their race to be Black or African-American, followed by White. Important ancestries of people in Bronx include Jamaican, Italian, Irish and African.
In addition, Bronx has a lot of people living here who were born outside of the US (33.98%).
