Earlier this week, we took recommendations from brokers on the best Bronx neighborhoods for the uninitiated to begin their apartment search in the borough. For our Crib Sheet roundup of open houses happening this weekend, this week we're focusing on that handful of neighborhoods. No open houses from Pelham Bay showed up in our search, but these listings cover the four other neighborhood picks, and they range widely in price and size.

For the Bronx curious looking to by a place, here is an idea of what's out there.

3363 Sedgwick Ave., Kingsbridge Heights

A two bedroom co-op that has been gut-renovated, across from the Jerome Park Reservoir. The building is postwar, with $750 a month maintenance fees. It's a little over 10 minutes to the 1 train, and steps from an express bus. The trip into Midtown is about an hour. The apartment is listed for $199,900.

The open house is set for Sunday, May 13th, 1:30-3:30 p.m.

2836 Valentine Ave., Fordham

A 1915 house with a formal dining room, and a kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. On the top two floors, there are four bedrooms, and out back is a small, paved yard. The house is listed for $515,000, or the price of a dog kennel with one big window in Williamsburg. The D train is four blocks away at Kingsbridge Road.

The open house is set for Sunday, May 13th, 12:30-1:30 p.m.

5700 Arlington Ave., Riverdale
