The neighborhood around Yankee Stadium seems to be called “Concourse,” including the courts on E. 161st Street over to Jerome Avenue. I walked by and peered into, but did not take any pictures of, the latest version of The House That Ruth Built.
This statue stands just across E. 161st Street from the Bronx County Courthouse.
This is the Art Deco style, Depression-era construction, block-like “Courthouse,” not to be confused with the 21st Century building below …
The “Hall of Justice.” It’s glass exterior supposedly expressing transparency and openness.
Just west of Yankee Stadium sits one of the best examples of Bronx Art Deco apartment buildings (usually associated with Grand Concourse(, the Park Plaza Apartments.
Wonderful, colorful terra cotta details all around this building. This is just a small sample.
Leading up to the Woodycrest/Highbridge neighborhoods from Jerome Avenue. Like Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, the numbered streets west of Jerome are “West …” while those to its east are “East …” But, while in Manhattan that demarcation also corresponds to the East and West Sides, not so in the Bronx. The West Bronx, as a geographical area, extends to the Bronx River. Thus, most of East 165st Street (and many others) lies in the West Bronx.
