Click 's to Rate!

Kingsbridge Heights is a diverse neighborhood with a variety of shopping outlets and numerous restaurants. Morton Williams is the best super market in the area; however, the neighborhood has a fair share of smaller markets run by locals, which cater to a wide variety of palates and budgets. In Kingsbridge Heights, one can find anything from fresh fish and Middle Eastern spices to dried salt fish and Vietnamese Pho. The neighborhood has easy access to public transportation. It is served by the 4, B, and D subway lines as well as several bus lines, which pass through frequently. Several large facilities provide for varied employment opportunities. Of note is Mercy College, which runs along the length of the 4 train between Fordham Road and Kingsbridge Road, as well as James J Peterson VA Medical Center, which is one of the highest rated medical facilities in The Bronx. For families and young adults, Kingsbridge Heights is minutes away from several health care facilities ranging from private clinics to public hospitals such as North Central Bronx Hospital. Education facilities are numerous, from well-regarded institutions like PS 86 to Lehman College. Kingsbridge Heights makes up for what it lacks in aesthetics with utility, community spirit, relatively affordable housing options and access to public transportation. Kingsbridge Heights has a great deal to offer those in search of a new community to call home, and certainly proves that a book isn't to be judged by it's cover. --- by Adam Martinez
