Famous as the home of Yankee Stadium, elevated trains, and dense apartment blocks, the Bronx is also the greenest of New York City's boroughs. Visit the gorillas at the famous Bronx Zoo or wander through the 50-acre forest at the New York Botanical Garden. Pick up some gourmet foods on Arthur Avenue, the Bronx's Little Italy, and have a picnic at Van Cortlandt Park, which features two square miles of boating, horseback riding, tennis, and the oldest public golf course in the United States.

Island off the east coast of the Bronx that transforms into a seaside resort on weekends during the summer.
I have visited City Island pretty much bi-weekly...the atmosphere, its tranquility, as you are 'transported' to a community sorrounded by water, makes you feel as though you're in Cape Cod...in a boating & fishing community. In this fishing village, you must visit shops like "Captain Mike's Diving" you can learn scuba diving, book fishing excursions, and so much more. It has been at that location for over 27 years!...learning its history alone is mind boggling. ...and eateries like "The Lobster Box", Sammy's Fish Box", "Ohana Japanese Restaurant" are awesome. The church, the school, & businesses...its community is not harried like us on the other side of the City Island bridge...when you go, visit the little mom and pop businesses, where you can buy trinkets, your worms or tackle for fishing or wolf down dessert at the "Black Whale", and stop there, if only to gaze at a very old gnarled tree on its corner. A beautiful place!

Yankee Stadium, “The Cathedral Of Baseball” and the home of the New York Yankees, the most successful sports franchise in history. My wife and I have attended multiple New York Yankee games in the past and we’ve always enjoyed our game experience at the Yankee Stadium!!! Both my wife and I were swept by the beauty and design of the stadium’s ballpark, admired the stadium’s homage to the previous Yankees stadiums of the past, enjoyed visiting the New York Yankees Museum, and loved the hundreds of photographs that capture the history of the Yankees and showcase their players of today. Hopefully in the near future, when the days of COVID 19 are long behind us, fans will get to visit Yankees stadium and watch New York Yankees baseball. The Yankee Stadium is undoubtedly the best ballpark ever made!!!

The largest urban zoo in the U.S., with over 6,000 animals within its 265 acres of parks, woods and streams.
The Bronx Zoo is so much fun! We went on a simulated dinosaur safari; saw a Komodo dragon; visited sea lions and gorillas in the Congo; went on monorail ride through the jungles of Asia. This zoo is absolutely a must-visit. It's only a 3.5 hour drive from north of Boston!

Best small Italian food shops and restaurants around. Very good pizza at Full Moon, great pastries at Artuso's Pastry, great cheese and delicacies at Casa Della Mozarella, delicious homemade pasta and ravioli at Borgatti, wonderful Italian bread at Terranova Bakery. An enjoyable day going from one shop to another checking out all the great food.

The Bronx Brewery is a small, craft brewery in the Port Morris section of the South Bronx. It was launched in 2011 by a small team with two things in common: a maniacal focus on creating high-quality beer and a passion for the Bronx and New York City. Its traditionally-crafted pales ales use only premium and minimally-processed materials to create fresh, bold beer from a borough known for its own uniquely bold character. The team is enthused to bring a rich brewing tradition back to the Bronx and craft a beer that the people of the Bronx and New York City can be proud to call their own. You can find our beers throughout New York.
