Throgs Neck Reviews

29
All Categories
Throggs Neck is a blue collar neighborhood that is family centric. The 20 and 30 somethings are catered to with a plethora of Irish Pubs. There are regular local events for families and young adults ("Faddy's Day parade, Little League Parade, Throggs Neck Ball, etc.). The waterfront views, the proximity to Pelham Bay Park, the access to the highway, and the sense of community make it a great place to live. You should own a car, public transportation is lacking (part of the charm), but no alternate-side parking rules. Public Schools here are horrendous, but lots of great private schools. It is a VERY safe neighborhood, without an overbearing police presence (although many live there). This is a predominately Irish and Italian neighborhood, with not too much diversity in culture or food, but in 45 minutes your'e in Manhattan and right in the thick of the melting pot. I'm a minority, and am never made to feel out of place.

Throgs Neck is a very safe, family-friendly community. It's perfect for couples who want to own a house and raise kids who ride their bike on the street, play in local sports leagues, join girl scout troops, and attend good schools. There are a lot of churches. It can get kind of boring because there isn't much to do here other than eat, walk on the beach, or go to a pub. It's very conservative and homogenous so if that's your thing it'd be perfect, but it's not for me.
The area has lots of small commercial stores, banks, houses, public schools and libraries near each other. Each are very accessible in walking distance. The local elementary school is very active with families as well as the middle school that has a solid education plan. The elementary and middle school are only 2 blocks from each other. Each have a very large playground for the kids during recess. There is a fire department and police station a few blocks from the schools, providing lots of safety.
