The Bronx City Guide
The Bronx, a NYC borough that uses the definite article both conversationally and officially, has a population of 1.4 million and a motto that says "Yield Not To Evil." Pretty fitting after earning a reputation during the ‘60s and ‘70s as a tough, violent, and poverty-stricken place. But in recent years officials have worked hard to revive it and now it’s a city to be proud of—as are Bronxites Woody Allen, Al Pacino, and Jennifer Lopez.
Whether you’re moving to The Bronx or simply visiting, be sure to check out Edgar Allen Poe’s cottage where the poet wrote some of his most famous poems. If you’re looking for some poetic inspiration of your own, wander around the Botanical Gardens, the Bronx Museum of the Arts or three of New York City’s largest parks: Bronx Park, Pelham Bay Park, and Cortlandt Park. When you think about the town where Spike Lee filmed Son of Sam, you probably don’t think sunbathing on white sand, but Orchard Beach is a great public beach.
If you’re an aspiring filmmaker hoping to make the next Bronx Tale, where do you stash all your movie-making equipment so your parents don’t throw it out and insist that you enroll at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine instead? There are plenty of local storage units to suit any needs.
A trip to The Bronx would not be complete without a jaunt down to Little Italy where you can purchase, or simply inhale like a carbohydrate junkie, fresh pasta, bread, and sausage. Or you could visit City Island, an actual island with a very New England feel, and enjoy the many seafood restaurants. And if you’re really looking to expand your horizons, Manhattan is just 30 minutes by car or one hour by subway away.
Don’t miss The Bronx Zoo, the biggest metropolitan zoo in the nation, where you can see 6,000 animals from Aardvarks to Zebras. If you’re looking to gawk at animals of a different nature, head on over to The Lehman Center for the Performing Arts where such acts from B.B. King to “Hair” have graced the stage.
Between the mesh bags full of fusilli and salami and the life-sized stuffed Anaconda from the gift shop, you’re going to need a safe and climate-controlled place to stash all these valuables—which you can find at a handy self storage facility.
