Country Club is mixed-income, mostly upper middle class to affluent residential neighborhood located in the East Bronx in New York City; it shares the 10465 ZIP code with Throggs Neck, although it is part of Pelham Bay; and it contains a large Italian-American population.

The neighborhood's boundaries are Pelham Bay Park to the north, Eastchester Bay to the east, Lafayette Avenue to the south, and the New England Thruway to the west. This area is policed by the 45th Precinct.[1] [Pelham Bay Park]] including Orchard Beach, the largest public park in New York City, is located at Country Club's northern border. Residents are approximately 2 miles from City Island in Eastchester Bay. Country Club is bordered to the west by the Bruckner Expressway and the Throgs Neck Expressway, and to the east by the Throggs Neck Bay.

As there is no alternate side parking regulation in this residential area, therefore many residents drive. Manhattan is easily accessible via two New York City Subway stations on the Number 6 IRT line: Pelham Bay Park and the other at Buhre Avenue, approximately .5 from the border of Country Club.[2] Surface transportation is provided by the Bx24 local bus.[3]

Country Club has a private primary Educational institution, Villa Maria Academy, operated by the Congregation of Notre Dame of Montreal. The zoned public school, PS 71 is in nearby Pelham Bay.

Country Club has a population of around 8,000 people. It is a predominantly white neighborhood with around 89% of the population of Country Club being non-Hispanic white, while approximately 8% are of Hispanic ancestry and the remaining 3% a mix of Black and Asian.[4]
