District 11, in the northeast Bronx, borders Westchester County on the north and includes the leafy neighborhoods of Pelham Parkway, Eastchester, and Woodlawn; the high-rise towers of Co-op City; the tiny seaside community of City Island; and the low-rise apartments around Albert Einstein Hospital, Montefiore Medical Center and Bronx Municipal Hospital Center. The district has a mix of expensive and moderately priced single-family houses as well as co-ops and rentals. The district is home to PS 153, the Helen Keller school, which serves students with severe disabilities, those in general education and gifted students.
