Nevertheless, many of our total housestaff reside in The Bronx including the City Island and Riverdale sections of the borough; a significant percentage live within walking distance of the medical center, in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx.
This pleasant-friendly neighborhood boasts affordable housing in a tree-lined, low-crime area.

The Falk Recreation Center on the adjoining Einstein campus has a 25-meter swimming pool, indoor running track, free weights and racquetball and squash courts.
