Walk Score in Pelham Bay
Pelham Bay is a neighborhood located within the larger community district of The Bronx in New York. Pelham Bay is consistently named one of the safest areas in the Bronx. It takes its name from the area's most famous green space and park - The Pelham Bay Park, and of course, the bay that secures the northeastern border of that park. Pelham Bay Park is three times the size of Manhattan's Central Park, so lace up those walking shoes and grab some extra water and poop bags for Fido. You can walk with your furry friends and take in some well-developed and landscaped cityscapes and green spaces. Be sure to be a courteous paw parent and always clean up after your furry pal so Pelham Bay can maintain its scenic beauty.
