Description
Named after the Bronx River (which took its name from a Swedish sea captain, Jonas Bronck) the borough retained the article and became known as The Bronx. This northernmost borough, though primarily residential, touts its fair share of sights and recreations including the magnificent vistas of Wave Hill House , the aromas of the Italian markets on Arthur Avenue and the sounds of salsa in the South Bronx.
The Bronx lays claim to more parkland than any other borough and is home to the sprawling grounds of the New York Botanical Garden and the promenades and pavilions of Orchard Beach. Feeling nautical? The community of City Island in Long Island Sound has the look and feel of a New England fishing village. No trip would be complete without a day at the Wildlife Conservation Society's Bronx Zoo , reputedly the largest urban zoo in the country featuring more than 4,000 animals. And then there are some who see a trip to the Bronx as a pilgrimage to the mecca of baseball, Yankee Stadium, and for whom an afternoon spent with the “Bronx Bombers” is as close to perfect as a day can be.
