Pelham Gardens Reviews
A genuine aspect of my neighborhood I admire is how accessible the local fire/police stations are. The local fire station is right around the corner of my house and the police station is 2 shorts blocks north. There are 3 huge hospitals (Jacobi, Montefiore and Albert Enstein). However, the hospitals are not up to par. The allotted waiting period is ridiculous. Not to mention the fees included despite only seeing a physician for a short amount of time. Because all these major services are near each other, its never truly quiet. As for public transportation, one bus in particular is inconsistent. I am not too familiar with local representatives/state reps/governors/etc.
I would like to see more family friendly and affordable activities in the neighborhood. I would also like to see affordable or free sports programs in the neighborhood.
Like I previously said, it is a family oriented community. While there are only bike lanes inside the park, the neighborhood is not that populated where the bicyclists have to worry. There is always parking available and the level of walkability is great. There are 3 major buses right in front of my house and a couple blocks down there are 2 more. There are 3 trains accessible. the only highly congested area is right in front of house because of major intersections and because it is a corner house.
