The Bronx

Neighborhood Highlights

  • print

The Bronx is rich in early Americana, with vestiges of Native American and Dutch settler nomenclature such as Kappock Street (from the Lenape shorakapok meaning “edge of the river”) and Spuyten Duyvil (from Dutch settlers’ “Spuit den Duyvil” or “Devil’s Spout” for a creek). The Bronx also retains thousands of acres of open terrain, including Van Cortlandt Park, Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden, the Bronx Zoo and Wave Hill. Several historic houses dot the parks and are open to visitors. These include the 1840s Bartow-Pell Mansion; the Van Cortlandt House, the oldest house in the borough, dating to 1748; and the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, a modest wooden farmhouse that became the famous author’s last residence.
