About the Bronx

bronx-mapThe Bronx is the sole borough which occupies the U.S. Mainland. Manhattan and Staten Island reside on their own islands, and Queens and Brooklyn are both located on Long Island. The Bronx is also the most northerly of the five Boroughs.

Like the rest of the boroughs, the Bronx is simultaneously a county as well as a borough of New York City.

The Bronx is also incorporated as Bronx County, and Yonkers is immediately north of the borough.

Yonkers almost became a borough of New York City, but its citizens voted against joining the city in the late 1800s.

Bronx Population and Demographics

bronx-map-1The only borough with fewer people than the Bronx is Staten Island. The Bronx has a population of about 1.4 million residents. On the other hand, the Bronx is larger than every other borough besides Queens. Out of the five boroughs, the Bronx has the third greatest population density overall.

The actual density of residential property in the borough is greater than it seems, however, because the Bronx has a large number of parks and green space which is unoccupied, increasing the density of areas where people actually live in the borough.

Bronx Parks

van-cortlandt-parkAmazingly, even though the Bronx has such high population density, almost a quarter of the land in the borough consists of parks, forest land, and beaches. Some of the most well known green spaces in the Bronx are Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden, the Bronx Zoo, Woodlawn Cemetery, and Van Cortlandt Park.

The majority of the parks and open space of the borough is in North Bronx and Central Bronx. Most of these parks were owned by large landowners in the late nineteenth century that decided to donate some of their land for the greater public good.

They recognized that the urbanization radiating outward from Manhattan would eventually consume much of the Bronx and decided that they wanted to preserve some of their beautiful land for future generations to enjoy.

The Modern Bronx

modren-bronxThe Bronx has undergone a great series of changes throughout its existence. In the seventeenth century, it started out simply as the farmland of a sole landowner named Jonas Bronck. Over time, more and more people moved to the area, but it remained heavily agricultural.

In the late 19th century, there were a number of wealthy landowners, and by the twentieth century, the borough began to urbanize as immigrants moved into the area to start new lives in America.

In the middle of the 20th century, the area started to go into decline, but beginning in the late 1980s, the area began to undergo a period of immense change and gentrification that improved the conditions of the Bronx considerably, and today, the area is a wonderful place to visit, with many things to see and do. The Bronx Zoo is the largest urban zoo in the United States and has a huge variety of animals, and Yankee Stadium is home to the most storied baseball team of the history in the sport.

In spite of the high population density, the Bronx is not all apartment complexes and multi-unit homes. The further north that you get, away from the core of New York City, the lower the population density gets.

There are some wonderful historic neighborhoods along the Hudson River such as Riverdale, and there is even a wonderful beach in Northeast Bronx known as Orchard Beach, which was once hailed as “The Riviera of New York.”
