Explore the New York City Borough of the Bronx
The Bronx is a borough of New York City located just south of Westchester County and is home to a population of approximately 1.5 million people. The borough is known for a great deal of open land compared to the rest of the city, featuring scenic park spaces such as Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden, and Cortlandt Park. Originally, the borough was home to the Lenape Native Americans, who bring a unique and mystifying history to the district.
