Living in the Morrisania neighborhood of Bronx

Morrisania Apartments

Morrisania is a neighborhood in the South Bronx. Much of the housing stock in this community consists of public housing projects, but there are several low- to mid-rise apartment buildings dotting the area, as well as a few five-story tenements.


Some streets on the eastern side of town still have rows of townhouses, many of which are the original structures (namely on Jackson, Forest, and Tinton Avenues), among just a handful of historical single-family homes.
