Pelham Bay Reviews
What I like About Pelham Bay Is the big park they have, and he respect the people offer to others. What id like to change is noting. Its just perfect!
I have lived here since I was 6 years old and haven't had much bad experiences. The areas here are pretty normal and quiet. I went to school here and am still a current resident of the area. Transportation and traveling is not bad at all. The only thing I can say gives a hard time in the neighborhood is skunks, possums, raccoons, and many cats coming around. It gets worse at night but other than that, its a pretty average neighborhood to live in.
Pelham Bay is an awesome place to reside. There are tons of buildings, varyings in sizes, shapes, and color. Therefore, choosing a place to reside should be easy. There is a local shopping center nearby and restaurants. All these stores and places are very convenient. Due to this, you will not have to walk far. Also, transportation is very accessible, making traveling trouble-free.
