Fun Facts and History of Van Nest

Van Nest, named for the railroad stop that came through here in the 1800’s, shared much of the same culture as its neighbor, Morris Park. However, Van Nest was 20 years older than Morris Park, making it one of the earliest developed parts of The Bronx.

While still largely farmland, the area was ground and paved in 1895 to draw more people to the popular horse racing tracks. However, this prosperity did not last long, as Morris Park soon took all the racing business for itself.

Van Nest then became a haven for disenfranchised populations and the working class. Though they had some struggles during the 1900’s, these were relatively minor compared to the issues other neighborhoods were having. Today, Van Nest is still a working class neighborhood with a lot of pride and hustle.

The vast majority of buildings here are mid-rise apartment complexes and single family row houses. There are almost no high rises in sight. There are multiple train lines and religious buildings that lend unique architecture to the neighborhood.
