Concourse is situated on the west shore of the Bronx across the river from Manhattan and is a perfect combination of the borough’s storied past and inspiring future.
The neighborhood, bordered by the East River, Highbridge, and Fleetwood, is packed with attractions that make it a sought-out destination for renters and visitors alike.
The neighborhood’s centerpiece is the Grand Concourse, a wide boulevard designed to emulate the Champs-Élysées in Paris. One of the largest collections of Art Deco buildings in the country line each side of this concourse, vibrating with history. The Grand Concourse was recently designated a historic district, and that’s led to renovations for nearby parks like Joyce Kilmer Park, named after the famous poet.
There’s also the brand new Yankees Stadium, the Bronx Museum of the Arts, or at the top of the Grand Concourse, the wonders of the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Gardens.
Concourse is home to several parks. Joyce Kilmer Park, on the Grand Concourse between East 161st and 164th streets, features the Lorelei fountain, carved out of white Tyrolean marble and depicting a mythical siren surrounded by dolphins and mermaids. Franz Sigel Park, on the Grand Concourse between East 151st and 158th streets, hosts baseball and basketball games. Walk a few blocks west of the Grand Concourse and discover Macomb Dam Park, a new state-of-the-art recreation area built on the rooftop of the two story Ruppert Plaza Garage, across the street from Yankees Stadium. Nearby Mullaly Park contains soccer and softball fields, tennis courts, and a world-famous skate park, where skateboarders, bike riders, rollerbladers and rollerskaters practice stunts on the half-pipe and ramps.
Concourse not only embraces the past, but celebrates the future. Yoga studios, organic food options, and a weekly farmers’ market in the warmer months reflect the vibrant new face of the Bronx. Plus the huge Gateway Center provides all the options and comforts of an all-American mall.
Commuters have a wide array of choices, including quick access to Manhattan with the B, D and 4 trains.
