The 45th Precinct is located at 2877 Barkley Avenue, at the corner of Revere Avenue in the Northeast Bronx. The precinct area contains 6 miles of park area, and 10.6 miles of waterfront.

The precinct is predominantly residential, intersected by large commercial strips located on East Tremont Avenue, Crosby Avenue, Buhre Avenue, Westchester Avenue, and Westchester Square. The 45th Precinct also has two unique areas, Coop City and City Island. Both are self contained communities with their own shopping centers, traditions and proud histories. A major shopping mall and movie complex (Bay Plaza) exist within Coop City. Bay Plaza attracts shoppers throughout the Bronx and Westchester. These areas are indicative of the confidence and pride that people have in this community.

Coop City is the largest residential development of its kind in the United States. It is situated on 340 acres in the northeast corner of the Bronx. There are over 33,000 people living there and the community prides itself on its ethnic balance. The complex is made up of thirty-five (35) multistory apartment buildings intermingled with town houses, schools, parking garages and shopping centers.

City Island is best described as a little piece of New England within New York City. It is located in the northeast corner of the Bronx on the Long Island Sound and is connected to the mainland by a three lane bridge. The island has a seafaring tradition dating back to the 18th century, with many of its inhabitants tracing their heritage back to those early days. City Island hosts some of the finest seafood restaurants in New York City. During the summer months thousands of people flock there to enjoy what the island has to offer. The island is mostly residential with a commercial strip, City Island Avenue that runs the length of the island. Luxury housing units have been developed on the island which is indicative of its attractiveness as a good place to live and raise a family in New York City.
