If you’re looking for a diverse experience, the Bronx’s eclectic neighborhoods fits the bill. The City’s northernmost borough offers laid-back outings, vibrant history lessons and top-notch eats. The Grand Concourse, a majestic civic thoroughfare, provides the perfect setting for a warm-weather jaunt; the storied stretch encompasses baseball at Yankee Stadium, arts and culture at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and Pregones Theater as well as impressive art and architecture. On Arthur Avenue shop owners serve up a taste of Italy in the form of pastries, meats, cheeses and fresh oysters. Irish heritage pulses through the music, pubs and shops of Woodlawn, while Riverdale provides a quiet escape where visitors can take horseback-riding lessons or explore the rolling gardens of Wave Hill. And summer is the perfect time to see it all.
Kayaking, culture and curious creatures are just a subway ride away from Manhattan. Time Out New York Kids has the scoop.
The Bronx's Little Italy serves up authentic cuisine and old-fashioned charm.
This Bronx thoroughfare is a worthy attraction for architecture, history and culture buffs.
