Woodlawn is a small neighborhood in the borough of the Bronx. It's considered to be the heart of the Irish-American community in New York. I liked that it has a small town feel within the parameters of a big metropolitan city. If I could change something I think it would be to add more healthy food options or even a Starbucks!
Woodlawn is a real nice area to live in. Most of the children go to Public School 19 on Katonah avenue for their grammar and middle school, and head else where for high school. For the teenagers, there are several Catholic High Schools around the area, both all boys/girls and co-ed. For the adults, commuting to Manhattan, or anywhere really, is easy thanks to the express buses that go to midtown, the local buses that go around the Bronx, the subways, and the Metro North Railroad
