      No Calvary Hospital is way up by Westchester Square West of that subway station heading north Calvary Hospital is located there

  2. That was the area that the mayor put on tv. I remember drugs were so bad you had to show identification you lived on the block. Or the police would not let you in. It was barracated! Condos I doubt that very much but anything can happen!

  3. Sucg l7xury in such a desperate part of the bronx

  4. The ONLY reason that this neighborhood is “bad”,”desperate”, etc. etc is because the CITY OF NEW YORK and the STATE OF NEW YORK house the indigent in old buildings operated by the usual suspects. It’s a racket that uses the indigent as pawns to transfer vast sums of taxpayer money into corrupt hands. If the government and their cartel associates stopped their meddling, this neighborhood would have long since gentrified. The homeowners in the neighborhood would be thrilled if this happened. Unfortunately, they don’t have much say in the matter.

  5. Think they should leave it a residential treatment facility. When it was called Project Return that place saved my life.

    • Glad you got help.

      Hi Ellen I lived there when it was Project Return. It was almost 39 years ago come September. It saved my life too forevermore. I lived at “Starhill” for 19 months before I moved to the Reentry house in Manhattan. I was borribly addicted to drugs, homeless, hungry, helpless, hopeless and hugless!! Thank you!

    I cannot tell you what a difference that was made in my life when I arrived at this building called “Starhill” when it was “Project Return;” now known as Pallidia, nearly 39 years ago! I walked up that drive way a thousand times over the course of 19 months, the experience changed my life forever more!! And there was a period when; then, that the community was drug infested, something I know personally!! But there was a tremendous change, especially on Featherbed Lane over the year and a half I lived there and I thank GOD I found this place and cared for it like it was my home and it was for a guy who was horribly addicted, homeless, hungry, helpless,hopeless and hugless!!
