NYC: the boro series **THE BRONX**


My previous recent threads:

Philly Feel
4-Boro NYC Megathread (about 100 pics)
*Another* 4-boro NYC megathread (79 pics)
Puerto Rico Moments
Iceland: Land of Green
Greenland: Land of Ice
New York: Above as Below
Haiti: Southern Peninsula Delight
New York: Winter Sun
New York: People and Place




I wanted to showcase each of the 4 core boroughs of New York, starting with The Bronx and finishing with Queens, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, since many people still visit NYC never really exploring beyond lower Manhattan. Even most New Yorkers never really venture beyond a few of their familiar haunts. But there are countless different worlds beyond waiting to be delved into.

The four core boroughs would each be gigantic cities on their own. Each contains multitudes within, each harboring dozens and dozens of neighborhoods. Each would be a TOP 5 US city in terms of urbanity and density on a grand scale (with millions of inhabitants each).

Each is a behemoth with heaves of humanity ebbing and flowing throughout.

Here is but a mere sampling of life in the boroughs:


Queens
Manhattan
Brooklyn

The Bronx really is an overlooked portion of the city. Great photos!

Great shots about the Bronx! Thanks for posting.

I like to see unusual sides of New York, like you´ve done with this tour.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

The Bronx is looking awesome! All of NYC looks so much cleaner now than when I lived in the area 25 years ago!

My Man!



When I see your name in the list of photo threads I get a skip in my step because I know that it's gonna be brilliant. Keep 'em coming!

Another couple years of these and you're gonna start to approach the great Sabotai--the greatest photog this site has ever seen.

The Bronx is the real deal.

I roamed all over the Bronx in my two years in NYC, love the hills and strange quirks they bring. These shots make it look really nice and clean. My only complaint with BX is lack of good grocery stores and healthy eating options. Days in NY go by so fast because so much time is spent in transit and sometimes you just don't want to cook but want to eat somewhat healthy.

Also noticed the Bronx wasn't as "intellectual" for lack of a better word. I'm talking about Black bookstores, Rasta juice shops/Ital food stores. For example in BK or Harlem you can stumble upon a black with books about true African History, conspiracy theory videos etc. In the Bronx it is just very working class without that sense people being interested in culture as much.

This was my impetus in doing a boro series, since the Bronx (and to a lesser extent, Queens) are so relatively unknown and unexplored, but only because they live in the shadows. There's still copious amounts of awesomeness to be seen in these regions!

That's in the Highbridge neighborhood. It's really cool area to check out as you're in a very dense urban area in a very hilly setting.
