Concourse, Bronx is a residential and commercial area with several notable locations including the Bronx Museum of Arts, Yankee Stadium, and BronxWorks. The area is highly walkable with restaurants, shops, and services at street-level and residential space on upper floors. 


The weather for walking in New York is variable. Temperatures are relatively moderate due to the coastal location and winter temperatures do not get as cold as they do inland. A warm jacket is usually sufficient to protect pedestrians from cool winter temperatures. Rain is common in New York in the winter and spring and rain gear or an umbrella are advised if you plan on doing lots of walking. Hot, humid summer weather can cause dehydration, so be sure to bring water for you and Fido. Check the local weather forecast so you are aware of any weather systems from the Atlantic including storms and inclement weather that will hamper on-foot travel.
