“The Bronx” as New Yorkers call it is New York City’s northernmost borough. The Bronx is located northeast of Manhattan and it is the only one of the city’s five boroughs situated primarily on the United States mainland (the others are on islands). Home to Yankee Stadium , Fordham University, and the Botanical Gardens/Bronx Zoo, this borough is full of excitement and pizzazz. Many New Yorkers call the Bronx home for its ease of transportation by car and subway. With a more spread out urban plan one can find a house with a yard which is very rare in Manhattan. Whether it is the original little Italy, authentic 2nd and 3rd generation West Indian restaurants, or a trip to enormous Van Cortland Park this borough will not disappoint.
