TimeOut NY has named the Irish enclave of Woodlawn one of the best places for families in New York.
The Bronx neighborhood, sometimes referred to as “Little Ireland” for its large Irish immigrant community, was voted by readers as a great place to consider raising a family.
Coming in number six, along with nearby Riverdale and Norwood, Woodlawn was praised for having “plenty of kid-friendly fun” and “growing families of many nationalities.”
Katonah Avenue, which runs though the heart of the neighborhood, boasts many Irish pubs and restaurants. Van Cortlandt Park is nearby, as well as beautiful Woodlawn Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark.
