Parkchester Apartments

Parkchester Real Estate

Parkchester apartments provide people with affordable living in a convenient urban area. The neighborhood is bordered by East Tremont Avenue on the north, the Cross-Bronx Expressway-Westchester Avenue on the south, the Bronx River Parkway on the west and Castle Hill Avenue on the east. Parkchester gets its name from the combination of Park Versailles and Westchester Heights, the two areas that comprise it.

The Met Life Insurance Company built up the first phase of Parkchester between 1939 and 1942. In the early 1940s, Parkchester housed many World War II Veterans. Although it was originally an area with a lot of rental units, many have been converted to condominiums over the years. The majority of Parkchester is residential; however, there are points of interest that provide something for everyone.

Metropolitan Oval can be found in the center of Parkchester’s shopping district. People who visit this beautiful park are able to enjoy the aesthetics in addition to getting some fresh air. Moviegoers who don’t want to spend a lot of money to see a blockbuster hit can be found at the Bow-Tie Cinemas. Unlike today’s average movie ticket price, this theater offers prices that don’t exceed $8.50 per ticket. Canela Salon and Spa is available to those who are seeking rest and relaxation but don’t want to break their wallets doing so. Finally, Zaro’s Bakery, a New York City bakery chain, has a store located in Parkchester where people can get delicious varieties of bread, all of which is freshly baked in the Bronx.

Parkchester, which is easily accessible by multiple modes of public transportation, contains over one hundred apartment buildings. Due to its affordable living and lively surrounding neighborhood, the area is truly a great place to live.
