Fordham Heights Apartments
Bronx

Fordham Heights is situated on the west side of the Bronx near the Harlem River, and is making headlines for its rapid growth and new energy.

Renters and visitors alike are impressed with the quick commute times to Manhattan and the bustling marketplace on Fordham Road. The neighborhood, bordered by Kingsbridge and Morris Heights, is known for its friendliness and community cohesion. With a renovation boom adding new offices and storefronts weekly, Fordham is quickly becoming a premier destination in the Bronx.

Fordham Road already hosts the largest, busiest and most energetic marketplace in the city, where local businesses rub shoulders with national retailers. The street’s foot traffic rivals any Manhattan thoroughfare. It’s in the midst of big renovations, such as a $1.3 million installation of historic street lighting and implementation of dedicated bus lanes.

More about Fordham Heights

Local cuisine includes famous Italian restaurants with lines out the door, mouth-watering southern barbeque, and spicy West African delicacies. Eat a gyro overflowing with succulent lamb or listen to a pizzeria owner play his saxophone for patrons.

Beyond Fordham Road lie two huge destinations: the Bronx Zoo and the New York New York Botanical Garden. Spread over 265 acres, the Bronx Zoo is the world’s largest metropolitan zoo, with over six thousand animals of all shapes and sizes. Explore the diverse natural habitats of Congo gorillas and Bengal tigers. The New York Botanical Garden contains 250 acres of trees, flowers and plants from around the world. Each season provides a unique opportunity for learning and enchantment.

Cross the street from the Botanical Garden and take a guided tour of Fordham University and its 85 acres of beautiful campus. Then explore the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, where the writer spent the last years of his life. You can see authentic period furnishings and the rocking chair Poe used to think up his macabre tales.

The best part of Fordham Heights? It’s real easy to get there. There’s easy access to Manhattan via the Metro North railroad and the B & D subway trains.
