$1M NYC Tour Part 4- “Da Bronx Bombers”


Share

Now if you are thinking outside of the box, then you are thinking of the Bronx. There is nothing as non-diluted, un-filtered and authentically New York as the only portion of the city that is actually on the continental United States. This is the home of the greatest professional sports team in the history of sports, the New York Yankees. If you have a need a reverse commute into Connecticut or work somewhere in Westchester County or upstate NY and still want to be close enough to Manhattan to feel like you are not out in the sticks, this is where it’s at. Plus getting to the games is a simple task. The front-runner Yankee fan commutes an average of 45 minutes from New Jersey, even longer if coming from Long Island or wherever they flock from. A true fan living in the Bronx commutes 15-20 minutes maximum.

As for the purchase options in the Boogie Down, there are plenty of low prices. As with anywhere else in NYC, location is everything. To simplify the process, I have focused on the absolute best amount of square footage in a nicer area for both the co-op condominium options.
