  • It is a magical neighborhood, each with its own story to tell, there are beautiful people, some born and raised there, with whom I also had the pleasure of having a chat. Those who hope will one day open their own business and those who melancholy tell their experiences. I have seen that August is beautiful, they celebrate along the streets with typical products and I think they do it with other Italian holidays. Walking through the shop windows you can see exhibited typical Italian products, even food brands. Italian-American language pleasantly everywhere, from older ladies to children. They love Italy and appreciate it much more than some of us. Walking unbeknownst to be inside the wonderful movie "bronx" of 1993.

  • Arthur Avenue still offers a range of restaurants and some food stores but there are fewer than in the past. Some roads were recently made one way so be careful if driving.  more »

  • Interesting neighbourhood. You really don’t feel that you are in Bronx! Like an oasis in desert. Many nice restaurants and pubs. You can buy fresh pasta in Italian grocery store.
  • Start at prince coffee house on Arthur Avenue with a fantastic coffee and great people watching. We heard Italian at every table. Then go up Arthur Avenue to the indoor Arthur Avenue retail market which is amazing. Everything from cigars to every food you can imagine. Keep going and shops, bakeries and restaurants abound. End up at a wonderful bakery called Artuso bakery. Go hungry!
  • It's changed a little since my youth. But thank God not all that much. Fresh pasta , pastries and real butchers are still the main attraction
  • Very cool. Tough to get to from the city. Would not recommend walking from Tremont Station like we did. Uber or so at another station. Cool shops. Interesting people. Some really good food and some very average food, too. Hunt for the good food
  • My home since 1979. Wonderful community with a diverse population. Many good options and shopping for fresh foods and ingredients. Totally gentrified
