Pelham Bay is a middle- to upper-middle class neighborhood located in the northeast Bronx, home to roughly 15,000 residents. It is bordered by wide vehicular thoroughfares including Pelham Parkway, the Bruckner Expressway and the Hutchinson River Parkway, yet exhibits the pervasive tranquility and country-clean air that characterize a small town in the country. Pelham Bay is largely high-rise free. Many locals are house or condo owners and have lived in the neighborhood for generations. Pelham Bay locals give the area high marks for safety and quality of life; it’s a nurturing, family-friendly environment with good schools, plentiful outdoor activities in nearby Pelham Bay Park and City Island, and convenient shopping and dining in the heart of the town along Buhre, Crosby and Westchester avenues. If the pace and the noise of the city is starting to get you, spend a day in Pelham Bay. You're sure to return refreshed, and it might be a life-changing visit. By automobile, Pelham Bay offers quick and convenient accessibility to local destinations, Manhattan, Queens and other NYC boroughs. Public transportation provides numerous local and express buses or the 6 train for a day (or night) in the city. Despite an hour plus commute to midtown Manhattan, Pelham Bay is a tranquil place to call home. By Ken Hamberg

    Bruckner Avenue Apartments are great as the girl below me said. I live here now and i love it. I moved out at one point to live closer to work and ended up moving back. People in the buildings are actually respectable and normal haha. Sizes of apartments vary but are all decent sized and pretty well kept. Buildings on bruckner are all clean and safe, personal opinion.

    Lived on Bruckner Ave. for many years, right off the Throgs Neck. Nice area, pretty calm besides the highway sounds. My sister currently still lives in Pelham Bay. The park is huge and beautiful. Great place for families and pets.
