Bronx County Information

Though it is technically called Bronx County, most people simply call it the Bronx. This was the last county to be incorporated into the State of New York, and it is the only borough to be primarily located on the mainland. Divided by the Bronx River, the borough has more open space than any of its counterparts. In fact, nearly a quarter of the Bronx's land is open space, which is interesting considering the highly urbanized surrounding area. Much of this land is dedicated to parks, and there are three that are particularly notable. One is the Pelham Bay Park, which is the largest park in New York City - three times bigger than Central Park! Here, visitors can enjoy walking along Orchard Beach, exploring Hunter Island, or visiting one of the wildlife sanctuaries. Van Cortlandt Park is another large park in the borough where cross-country running and baseball are big activities. Finally, Bronx Park is a popular attraction as it is home to the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo.

The Bronx isn't all green space though. It is part of New York City, after all, so one can expect to find all the big city features as well. Off-Broadway theaters, museums, and even a National Landmark (The Hall of Fame of Great Americans) all can be found here. There are several notable shopping districts as well, including Fordham Road and The Hub. You'll also find restaurants featuring every type of cuisine you can imagine, and this is due in large part to the thriving immigrant population in the area. Like the other boroughs of the city, different cultures have converged here to make the Bronx one of the most diverse areas in the country.
