The areas between the two major expressways, I-95 and I-278, in the neighborhood are certainly considered the most desirable. Here, life is quieter and living is easier. The neighborhood is made up of co-op apartment buildings, tri-level townhomes, and a few single-family homes. If commuting with ease is the priority, some residents find that living near the northern side of the neighborhood, on Castle Hill Avenue, is best. If traveling to Castle Hill itself is a part of one’s daily routine for work or school, the southern part of Unionport is preferable.
Nearly every dining option is limited to Castle Hill Avenue in Unionport. Culinary options range from vegan and pizza joints to Mexican and Cuban eateries. Just a short bus ride away, you’ll be able to find additional restaurants featuring dozens of cuisines. Castle Hill Farmstand is a great stop for fresh produce, and the neighborhood has a few big-box grocery stores for shopping, as well.
The streets of Unionport are quite gridlike. Commerce sits next to residential areas without a clear delineation. The nearby Castle Hill is home to a New York Public Library and the majority of the local schools. There are a few playgrounds in Unionport, plus some manicured yards, but the general feeling is quite urban.
There aren’t many nightlife options in Unionport, but there are a lot of hookah bars along Unionport Road. Here, neon lights and sunken sofas offer a very specific kind of relaxation. There are also a number of sports bars in the neighborhood for casual get-togethers and drinks with friends. Formal dining options are slim, but your best bet would be Brava Cafe, where you’ll get to enjoy live music most Friday nights.
Sunday is for relaxing in Unionport, so start by checking out The Way Cafe for breakfast and coffee. Take a walk along Westchester Creek all the way to the East River to get some exercise and fresh air. Once you’re near Pugsley Creek Park, explore some actual nature before taking the bus back to Unionport.
The 6 train on Castle Hill Avenue is the lifeline from Unionport to the rest of the city. Commuting by the 6 to Grand Central Station takes about 45 minutes. Traveling farther from downtown Manhattan becomes more complicated, but transferring to other trains at Grand Central Station is a great option. Taking the local Bx22 bus to the Metro-North Railroad is another popular transportation route. Owning a car is moderately popular, thanks to proximity to the Cross Bronx Expressway and Bruckner Expressway. Unionport also scores highly in the walking, biking, and commuting categories.
