Where can you go from gorillas to undergrads? Between the Bronx Zoo and its namesake university, Fordham brings bustle to the Bronx. Take a stroll through Van Cortlandt Park or tour historic houses before exploring the main thoroughfare, Fordham Road. If shopping turns to schlepping, break for pizza or Puerto Rican food.
