Tremont, New York - Low Income Area

I relocated to Tremont, New York a few years ago and have gotten to know the neighborhood pretty well. Tremont is a low income area in the west Bronx, New York City that is part of Bronx Community Board 5. The boundaries are Jerome Avenue to the west, the Cross-Bronx Expressway to the south, Webster Avenue to the east, and East 183rd Stree to the North. The main thoroughfare is the Grand Concourse. Manhattan is accessible by subway on the IND Concourse Line (B D).

The population of Tremont is around 45,000. The total area is about one square mile. Affordable housing is one of Tremont's greatest draws. It has traditionally been one of the poorest areas in the United States. In fact, more than half of the population lives under the poverty line and qualifies for public assistance such as AFDC, Home Relief, Medicad and Supplemental Security Income. Dominicans are the primary population in the neighborhood of Tremont but there are also many Puerto Ricans as well as African Americans.

The most attractive part of Tremont is the famous Morris Avenue Historic District, which is landmarked. Historic attached brownstones line the streets. Most of the housing in Tremont is rentals, and most tenements are 5 stories tall although some are taller. The neighborhood itself is on a higher elevation than surrounding areas and has a lot of hills. There are stair streets that connect various areas when they are at different levels.

Unfortunately, crime and drug addictions are big problems in Tremont. Violent crime plagues the community and Tremont suffers from higher than average rates of dropout in schools. Test scores tend to be below average and truancy is a significant problem. Poverty has been passed on from generation to generation in many families. A high incarceration rate is also present in Tremont.

Tremont has some good restaurants, such as East Tremont Buffet, a local Chinese restaurant with a top-notch variety of seafood. El Bohio Lechonera in East Tremont is also excellent.
Like any neighborhood, Tremont definitely has pluses and minuses. Since I have lived here for a few years, I have gotten a good feel for the place. In deciding whether you want to live in Tremont, you need to think carefully about the factors that are most important to you and your family.
