Hope for homeowners

Critics thought homeownership would never work in the South Bronx. They were wrong. Tour the one house currently for sale on Charlotte Street.

1 of 5
Bought for $50,000
Price: $459,000

Bedrooms: 5
Baths: 3
Square feet: 2,700

Description: This home is in what used to be one of the worst slums in America. Now, the streets are lined with single-family homes and shade trees.

The split-level ranch is in move-in condition. Another advantage: It is just a block-and-a-half from the 127-acre Crotona Park, the Bronx's equivalent to Central Park, with its ball fields, tennis courts, playgrounds and swimming pool.
