In addition to being close to wonderful Bronx neighborhoods, UHP is centrally located near the suburbs of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, and other New York City boroughs, like Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens counties.
Close to the Bronx is Manhattan, often considered the “core” of the Big Apple, which is home to trendy and upscale neighborhoods such as the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Harlem and Washington Heights, exciting entertainment and nightlife, numerous museums and cultural institutions and historic landmarks. It will also be home to the transformational Hudson Yards development, a mix of residential, retail and park space.
Queens and Brooklyn offers a mix of suburban and urban residential communities. Residents of both boroughs often closely identify with their neighborhood, such as Corona, Jackson Heights, Long Island City or Astoria in Queens and Williamsburg, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope in Brooklyn, rather than with the borough or city. Both boroughs are a patchwork of unique neighborhoods, each with its own distinct identity. Several of these neighborhoods are home to a diverse mix of ethnicities and cultures.
East of Queens and Brooklyn are Nassau and Suffolk counties, which make up Long Island. Like New Jersey, Long Island is known for its miles of coastlines bordering Long Island Sound to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South. Its upscale communities, excellent school districts, and beautiful beaches make Long Island a popular and scenic place to live.
