Is it time to move to the Boogie Down?

What are some good neighborhoods I should look into if considering moving to the Bronx? I have a 5 month old baby. I am looking for something affordable (for NYC), near good restaurants, amenities, transit and possibly a park.

I have lived in Brooklyn for 15 years. I love and hate what has happened to my favorite borough. But, I do recognize my role in gentrification. I have steadily been priced out of Greenpoint, Prospect Heights, and Crown Heights. I enjoy some of the restaurants and community. I am not in my 20's and never considered myself a hipster...
Anyways, BK is just pretty danged expensive. We own a Co-op in Ditmas Park that we probably couldn't afford if we bought today. Plus I have gig just over the border in CT and think I might be able to cut down my commute considerably. Can I get a cheaper mortgage/rent in an interesting neighborhood of the Bronx. Looking for families, restaurants, and other amenities close to transportation.
Any info and/or experiences making a similar move would be helpful.
