Thrillist ranks South Bronx 4th-best place to live under 30
The website Thrillist has ranked the South Bronx No. 4 out of its top-5 areas for people under 30 years old to live in New York City.
The up-and-coming neighborhood seemingly has new coffee shops, breweries and restaurants around every corner.
Even people who have moved out of the area, like Emelly Garcia, say they've thought about moving back.
"You can come out at 4 in the morning, and there's a restaurant there -- it has everything," she says. "You know around my way, they don't have none of that. It's shut down."
Thrillist says factors including the cost of rent, the selection of restaurants, access to subways and the area's nightlife led to its selection.
Lifelong resident Jose Rodriguez says the South Bronx should climb even higher on the list.
"Before, everyone was scared of the Bronx, the South Bronx," he says. "Now, it's a totally different place."
