Woodstock lies approximately 15 miles north-northeast from the city center in Bronx, NY, just east of Upper Manhattan and close to the East and Bronx Rivers. Several neighborhood parks dot the landscape, and baseball fans live just 10 blocks away from Yankee Stadium. The neighborhood is located close to public transit stops, a medical center and plenty of stores to buy everyday items.
Several schools serve the area, including elementary, middle and high schools. Jill Chaifetz Transfer High School remains at the heart of the neighborhood as part of the public school system.
