BEDFORD PARK - Residents of Bedford Park say their neighborhood is on the rise and is the lost jewel of the Bronx.

?We?ve got a lot of stores and businesses going on - the crime is lower,? says Marivel Barreto, who lives in the area. ?It's really good.?

Residents say the Victorian-style homes, cultural diversity and affordable apartments make Bedford Park one of the borough?s most charming neighborhoods.

The neighborhood?s location, just minutes from Manhattan, is also a plus, residents say.

?You got the D and the 4 trains ? it's all here,? says Zulma Leonardo.
