Norwood is a very interesting place to live in since it is nestled within a large hospital, a cemetery, a police headquarters and is only a few miles away from the world famous Bronx Zoo. I've lived here for most of my life and I can assure you that this place is a must see if you are visiting New York. It's like the prime example of a suburb right outside the bustling city!
I personally like my location, in New York nothing is too far away. It is easy to access Manhattan from here. A thirty-five minute train ride to Central Park. I am located on the boarder of Yonkers and The Bronx. Therefore, it is easy for me to access a more suburban scene. I can take a bus, or hop on the Metro North to access upstate New York. This location is surrounded by parks. There is a lot of foliage, that you see change ass the seasons pass. It is a fairly quiet location. Our neighbors across the street are squirrels, different kinds of finches and the occasional skunk. A couple blocks down is the commercial area that can get congested with people in the after noon. There are a couple schools around as well, so around three o'clock it can get a bit hectic between the crowd from the commercial area and the kids from the schools. The crowd dies down around four thirty. Not to many cars pass by either. At that point of the day and after, all you really hear is the light chirping of the birds, and the breeze rattling through the leaves.
