The Kingsbridge and Bedford Park Boulevard areas are lively, and many frequent the various restaurants that line the avenues. There are always people on the streets, especially students (considering that both Lehman and Clinton High School are nearby). The shops along Kingsbridge and Bedford Park Boulevard sell a variety of items, all at reasonable prices.
If students wish for even more variety, however, they can take the buses or trains to Fordham Road (which is one stop away and within walking distance). Fordham Road is lined with even more shops, department stores, restaurants, tattoo parlors, and Fordham University. Students can also take the Metro-North at Fordham Road, take buses to the Bronx Zoo, or visit the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage.
