I have rented an apartment in a private home for over 15 yrs. It's been beautiful, quiet and peaceful until two new neighbors moved in next and in front of the house I rent in. They have ruined the quality of life in the area. They dare block the dead end street with cones and turn the residential public street into a playground for their kids. The kids running up and down my window screaming their lungs out has ruined my quality of life. They moved into the area for its quiet and peacefulness but they have ruined it for everybody else. I have complaint to them and they have complaint to my landlord staying I am harrassing them! Unfortunately I am now looking to move. Its a shame that some people are such terrible neighbors and ruin good neighborhoods!

Simple neighborhood in the Bronx, New York with great people. Have lived here all my life and do not see myself leaving!
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.
