Melrose Apartments for Rent
About Melrose Neighborhood
Melrose is a small neighborhood near choice neighborhoods like Mott Haven and Concourse. Although a good deal of real estate is occupied by NYCHA housing, there is a good deal of tenement-style apartment buildings as well as some rowhouses. The 3rd Ave- 149th street stop on the 2/5 is a major stop in the borough. There is a lot of businesses, retail activity, and foot traffic at the very intersection. Much of the energy in this area spills over into the Melrose territory, where you can find plenty of shops and eateries among its blocks. Melrose is very close to the Bronx Terminal Mall, Yankee Stadium, as well as other major landmarks in the South Bronx area. Melrose's combination of being in a choice spot in the Bronx, a short commute to the city, and cheap housing make this an excellent spot for people looking to save, but stay close to the city and still have neighborhood options for entertainment.
