Living in the Claremont neighborhood of Bronx

Claremont Apartments

Claremont is a mixed-use neighborhood near Crotona Park in the Bronx. Situated to the south of the Cross Bronx Expressway, this section of town has a few residential sections, mingled around its large commercial district and the wedges of public housing.


Most Claremont apartments will be scattered about the neighborhood's edges--especially on the western half. Here, you'll find a few options when it comes to housing stock, such as newly constructed attached rowhouses, as well as several of the commonplace 6-story, pre-war tenement buildings. It's sections of these courtyard complexes (mostly near the Grand Concourse) where most available NY apartments will be found.

The playgrounds and large spaces makes this park a great spot to enjoy the weekend or have a relaxing picnic.
