Why The Bronx Is Not A Bad Place To Move To

You’ve probably heard some things about the Bronx that weren’t positive. One of those things was that it was a dangerous place to live. That’s not entirely true. There are a ton of attractions that you will be able to check out once you move and get settled into the Bronx. You’d be completely surprised what you would find here than you would in Manhattan or Queens. But don’t let someone else’s opinion of the Bronx be the end all to be all of your dream to move there. Here are a few reasons why you should give this place a look for yourself:

1. Rents are affordable

People say that if the rent is low, then it must be a bad place to live, right? Again, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. If you’re tired of living in a place where the rent might be too much and don’t mind a slightly longer commute, the Bronx might be a place you’ll like even more. Better yet, why rent an apartment when you can rent a house? It’s possible to rent one here in the Bronx compared to any borough in the city.

2. History Happened Here

The Bronx is home to the iconic Yankee Stadium. It is the home base of the 27 time World Champion New York Yankees. And you better believe that history happened here since the franchise’s inception. Maris hitting 61 home runs. Captain Jeter’s final home game where he hit a game-winning RBI single. This part of the city is Yankees country. So if you have a Yankee hat, wear it proudly. Unless you’re a Mets fan, of course…then just wear that until you’re out of the Bronx.

3. Some Famous People Are From The Bronx

Al Pacino and Billy Joel are among a handful of notable people who call the Bronx their old stomping grounds. No matter what you’ve heard about the Bronx, these guys are probably bragging about it right now. Probably telling a story or two about living in the Bronx in their younger years.

4. Nature Lives Here

Are you an animal lover? Why not take a trip to the Bronx Zoo? It is the largest metropolitan zoo in the country. It is home to more than 6,000 animals and spread over 260 acres in the Bronx Park. But don’t stop there. You should also check out the aquarium for a whole lot of aquatic creatures.


Despite everything that you hear about the Bronx, it is entirely up to you to decide if it is the right place for you to live or not. Every part of New York City has it’s set of problems. But don’t let that intimidate you. Spend some time in the Bronx and get a good feel for it. Who knows…you might fall in love with it enough to call it home.

    Customer Testimonials

    We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

    Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

    On the day of the move, the crew arrived early, and were fast, diligent, organized, and professional. All our furniture …

    I had a truly 5 star experience – they were on time, gave me a call an hour before arriving, packed everything neatly and efficiently and placed all items in my new place perfectly. Did the job as promised!

    “Simply Moving- It was our pleasure to move you, the crew said you were well prepared and did a good job with the destination layout and instructions”

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

    Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

    P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
