An Irish neighborhood (well, THE Irish neighborhood i guess) in the Bronx, NY. Main drags are Katonah Avenue, and McLean Avenue (which is technically in Yonkers, but is usually considered part of the neighborhood because the Irishness extends into Yonkers for a few blocks.) Woodlawn and McLean Heights are often collectively called Wood-Lean.
Woodlawn is 60% Irish.

The best neighborhood in the Bronx. Is NY's official Irish neighborhood. Right by the train to Yankee Stadium and Manhattan. The coolest place ever. Has the pride of the Bronx and the safeness and quiet of the suburbs. Peace.
Woodlawn is bounded by the city of Yonkers, the Bronx River Parkway, 233 St, and Van Cortlandt Park.

i.e enlightenment
The term 'woodlawn' is used by catholics in the same way 'nivana' is used by Buddhists or Grunge fans. The term originated from a school in the Northern Rivers NSW, whose religious education programme became so revered and copied that it became synonomous with 'enlightenment' itself. 'Woodlawn is a term now widely used by Catholic Australians.
