The Bronx

Neighborhood Highlights

  • print

The Bronx is brimming with different cultures and fun activities that are guaranteed to keep visitors of any age and interest satisfied. Families often flock to the 265-acre Bronx Zoo, while those looking for lush green head to the New York Botanical Garden's indoor floral displays. Visit Wave Hill, where winding, sometimes snow-dusted paths give way to sweeping views of the Hudson River, or test your balance on the ice rink in Van Cortlandt Park. Take a tour, too, at Yankee Stadium or with a guide from Tour America or SusanSez NYC Walkabouts. After a day of exploring, warm up inside one of Arthur Avenue's authentic Italian restaurants, bakeries or cafés, where you'll find fresh-made pasta, breads and biscotti to rival the motherland's.
