First things first, Bronx apartments provide more value than those in more desired NYC boroughs. For example, you can find a 2 bedroom, 2 bath Bronx apartment for $2,500 in Riverdale with plenty of space, 24 hour doormen, in a luxury, elevator building. An equivalent apartment in a desirable Manhattan neighborhood would likely cost 50-100% more.
