st paddys day can be quite the movie in woodlawn. the neighborhood is small, but everyone is very friendly.
This neighborhood is a hidden gem, Vancortland park provides excellent hiking trails, dog park, tennis courts, football fields and many baseball fields.
The metro north is only a few blocks from any house in woodlawn, the rambling house provides great community feel to woodlawn. Lots of events like runs and walks happening here all year long. This is the new brooklyn
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 patrolled by the 47 precinct, most of the cops are from the area as well so they sometimes let kids slide for certain things because they were once the same age.
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
There are not alot of crimes in this area but it is surrounded by areas with higher crime.
Its a nice area but it has changed over the last few years.
Bad winters mean difficulty getting around - since everyone parks on the street, the snow causes a big problem. We don't get plowed very much.
not sure what the US President has to do with my local community
If you love authentic Irish fare, this is the neighborhood for you. There are a few other kinds of restaurants: chinese, curry, pizza.
There are a lot of pubs so it's important to be careful at night
It's a great area to live in
Most residents work in Manhattan, not in the actual community, although some do. Many locals are in constructions.
If you're Irish, the community here is fantastic. If you're not Irish, you may be excluded.
It's a very Irish neighborhood
All mom-and-pop shops. Not really any chains.
There are a lot of Irish pubs in the neighborhood and no gyms, but many residents are in construction so you don't see a lot of people overweight

The Metro North is great but one must take the bus to the subway
