Best Strip Mall


Someone once told us, “If you don’t find what you want at the Fordham Road shopping strip, go look for it in Jersey.” By last count, there were nearly 120 stores and restaurants on this venerable road, with everything from diamonds to hardware. There are national names including The Gap and American Place, outlets for name brands Nine West. There’s even a first-rate comic book store, Fordham Comics, and four—count ’em, four—tattoo shops. (Try finding that in Jersey.) You can eat the usual fast food, but some of the restaurants are a cut above strip-mall level—particularly Dickey’s Barbecue Pit and Parrilla’s Latina Steakhouse, both of which come highly recommended. An easy subway or bus ride from the other boroughs. Fordham Road, from Jerome to Webster avenues, The Bronx
