Located on a peninsula jutting out into the East River and Long Island Sound, Throggs Neck occupies the southeastern corner of the Bronx. This is a laid-back residential middle-class community with a semi-suburban vibe.
Despite the quiet, the neighborhood does have some nice amenities. There's an 18-hole golf course, a tennis club, a park near the water with a baseball diamond, and plenty of fishing in the Sound. Throggs Neck also has a good number of restaurants, with everything from steakhouses to Mexican to pizza to sushi. Nightlife here is limited to a few bars. Basics like grocery stores and pharmacies are nearby.
You'll find modest, two-story brick and sideboard rowhouses, single-family homes, and low-rise apartment buildings. For those with children, there is an excellent elementary school here and a highly regarded all-girls private high school.
There is some limited public transportation here, but you'll need a car to get around.
Throggs Neck is bordered on the north by Schuylerville, on the east by the Long Island Sound, on the south by the East River, and on the west by Westchester Creek.
