The third largest park in the city (behind Pelham Bay Park and the Staten Island Greenbelt), Van Cortlandt Park is not only adjacent to Woodlawn Cemetery, the New York Botanical Garden, and the Bronx Zoo, but it's also home to the country's first public golf course, the oldest house in the borough, and the city's largest freshwater lake. If living near this 1,000+ acre oasis sounds appealing, an affordable housing lottery has just launched for 24 brand new units at 3677 White Plains Road in the Olinville neighborhood. One bedrooms are going for $1,292/ months and two-bedrooms for $1,458.
