Fordham Heights hosts a thriving and energetic section of the city dominated by five- and six-story apartment buildings, with nearby parks and green spaces creating a welcome reprieve from city life. The neighborhood is about a block from the Bronx Zoo, and Fordham University is located off the northeast corner of the neighborhood, along East Fordham Road.
With Manhattan only eight miles to the southwest, a commute to the city takes just a few minutes. Plenty of city amenities are located right in the heart of downtown; Fordham Road hosts a large marketplace with foot traffic rivaling Manhattan's thoroughfares. Rapid growth fueled by local industry and community spirit makes the area a premier destination filled with retail space, natural beauty, and neighborhood energy.
