Pelham Bay Reviews
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.
I've lived here all of my life and have had no bad experiences. It's a normal life and it depends on where you live, the areas are quiet. I went to a nice school and had no problems. An only thing is a number of rodents that come around. There are raccoons, opossums, skunks and several cats. other than that, it's pretty average.
