The Bronx


The Bronx is the northernmost borough of New York City and has a population of approximately 1,400,000. It is the home to a plethora of ethnic groups and many industrial parks and manufacturing facilities.

Although the Bronx is the third-most-densely-populated county in the U.S., about a quarter of its area is open space that contains Woodlawn Cemetery, Van Cortlandt Park, Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo.

Prominent shopping areas in the Bronx include Fordham Road, Bay Plaza (in Co-op City), The Hub, Riverdale/Kingsbridge Shopping center and Bruckner Boulevard. Shops are also concentrated on streets aligned underneath elevated railroad lines, including Westchester Avenue, White Plains Road, Jerome Avenue, Southern Boulevard and Broadway. Some of its most notable landmarks include the New Yankee Stadium, the most historic sports franchise in the world. The Bronx price is also the birthplace of rap and hip hop culture.
