Have been a resident in the area of Kingsbridge for a year now. Overall experience has been great. Very friendly residents, commute is very easy from the four train to the one train as well as local buses to travel to multiple places. Diverse restaurants offering different forms of cuisine to cater to everyones cravings around the neighborhood. Definitely a place to visit, especially since it is close to Riverdale.
Kingsbridge has a variety of characters and some parts of it are nicer than others. You can be along a street of bodegas and dollar stores, but two blocks away can be fairly quiet blocks with houses. Occasionally there have been incidents (stabbing, house blew up, car break ins) but this is not an every day occurrence. There has been a lot of building going on, in terms of new shopping centers and businesses as well as apartments. This is creating some parking difficulties. Kingsbridge is very near to Van Cortlandt Park, which is a plus. It also has a lot of diversity.
Kings bridge Bronx near the 1train. Only train near by a lot of buses though. By can cortland park this is good if you have children. Not many schools especially good ones. Private catholic school near by. Putnam Ave is for the most part safe 231st though not the best dirty sometimes weird people over there. Very quiet on Putnam Ave west 238th st. It's a hit or a miss depending on your taste. Not the worst though pretty decent. Rent is expensive. Buildt a mall on 230th st. Bjs smash burger chipotle buffalo wings subways is on 237th.
