Fairmont Claremont Village Apartments
Bronx

Claremont Village, or Fairmont as it is commonly called, is located in the south central region of the Bronx.

It is bordered by the Bronx River and Fulton Avenue. Like many of its surrounding neighborhoods, Claremont Village is a residential suburb predominantly made up of low-income families.

The site on which Claremont Village stands was once part of the Morris family estate. It was established back in the 1670s when the Morris family migrated to the Bronx from Wales. Their large property encompassed what we know today as Claremont Village and Morrisania. It was passed down through several generations of Morris men, most all held historically significant posts, until the mid-1800s when the land was relinquished. It was at this time the Claremont Village came into being, and immigrants from the crowded Manhattan tenements began settling in.

More about Fairmont - Claremont Village

Much like the neighboring Village Concourse, Claremont Village boasts an interesting mix of architectural styles. The neighborhood features a blend of brown-bricked row houses and pre-war mid-rise apartment blocks. Walking through streets of Claremont Village you will notice several dilapidated and boarded up homes but these aren’t enough to detract from the neighborhood’s early 20th century charm.

With its assortment of local attractions and recreational facilities, Claremont Village provides a suitable neighborhood for young families seeking the comforts of suburbia along with easy access to the city. Conveniently located within walking distance of anywhere in the neighborhood is the Bronx Haunted House, New Horizons Shopping Mall and a number of schools and parks with playgrounds.

But the most popular attraction with locals and visitors alike is Crotona Park - the 127-acre parkland located in the northwest corner of the Claremont Village. This park is decked out with everything you could want and more. There’s an Olympic-sized outdoor swimming pool, the beautiful Indian Lake and Boathouse, a nature center and a several sporting fields.

For those working in the city, commuting to and from Claremont Village can be done with relative ease. There are two subway stations located within the neighborhood which provide access to separate lines to the city. But for those who prefer to drive, Midtown is only 20 minutes away during off-peak periods.
