Travel Guide

The Bronx, New York City 



The Bronx is primarily a borough of working class neighborhoods, and often overlooked as a destination for many visitors, preferring Manhattan or even Brooklyn. There is no denying that most of New York City’s major attractions are in Manhattan but some are actually in the Bronx. Getting on New York City’s subway trains are a convenient way to get from Manhattan to the Bronx, with many of the attractions located within distance from the stations. The Bronx is just a short ride by subway train from Manhattan that you can make regular day trips.
