The Bronx

Whether you're relaxing at a Yankees game, indulging in fresh mozzarella and cannoli on Arthur Avenue, or scoping out exotic species at the zoo, there's plenty of fun to be had here. Named for the area's first documented European settler, Jonas Bronck, the Bronx may be the city's most misunderstood borough. Its reputation as a gritty, down-and-out place is a little outdated, and there's lots of beauty if you know where to look. There is more parkland in the Bronx than in any other borough, as well as one of the world's finest botanical collections, the largest metropolitan zoo in the country, and, of course, Yankee Stadium.
