Head north in the Bronx on the 4 train to the last stop and you will arrive in Woodlawn. Nicknamed Little Ireland by locals, this quaint residential neighborhood of 8,000 in the northern section of the Bronx affords a little taste of suburbia within the city. Rows of single-family homes and low-rise apartment complexes fill the neighborhood and lend to a family-friendly area. Katonah Avenue, the major north-south artery though Woodlawn, is lined with shops, bars and restaurants. Most noteworthy is the selection of Irish bars and restaurants such as Celtic House and Mary’s Celtic Kitchen. Woodlawn lies to the east of Van Cortlandt Park, a 1,146 acre lush area of trails, sports facilities, picnic areas BBQ grills, along with a well-renown public golf course. Woodlawn Cemetery, a national hallmark, is the resting place of many famous individuals, and offers guided tours via the Woodlawn Conservancy. P.S. 19 in Woodlawn provides education through 8th grade after which time students progress to a neighboring high school such as Dewitt Clinton. Parking can be found with ease, and accessibility to the neighborhood is quick via the Major Deegan Expressway (I-87), Bronx River Parkway, Moshulu Parkway, and Henry Hudson Parkway. Rail service is provided by the 4 train and Metro North’s Harlem Line. By Eric Levy
