While it’s always fun to enjoy the added sense of freedom that riding a motorcycle in New York City provides, all riders must exercise caution when passing through heavy traffic areas like the Bronx since too many deadly accidents occur there each year. Commuters must be especially careful when travelling on the Cross Bronx Expressway.
Fortunately, some Bronx neighborhoods are benefitting from New York City’s “slow zone” program that requires reduced speeds in high traffic areas.

Parts of the Bronx frequently traveled by residents, students and general tourists
Although there are many high traffic sections of the Bronx, two of the most popular areas favored by younger residents, tourists and others are the East Tremont and Fordham neighborhoods. The latter is perhaps best known for the presence of Fordham University on Rose Hill — it offers six graduate schools and four undergraduate programs. Fordham is a private Jesuit university often ranked among America’s best colleges by U. S. News and World Report.
The East Tremont neighborhood of the Bronx currently attracts many younger New York City Hispanic and Black residents. Approximately half of those living there are Hispanics and about one-fourth of the residents are Black or African-Americans. The average age of men living in East Tremont is twenty-nine (29) – compared to age thirty-three (33) for women.
Families occupy about one-half of the apartments and homes in East Tremont – with about one-fourth of those families including at least one married couple.
