How about the Bronx zoo, Bronx is burning, or the Bronx cheer.

I also think that the negative reputation has effected some people who live here - they were brought up hearing bad things about the Bronx and don't fully appreciate all the great things in their own borough. I grew up in the suburbs and couldn't walk anywhere, not even a deli much less a world class garden.

NooYowkur, where were you in Van Courtlandt? I've been a couple of times and was kind of underwhelmed, unfortunately. I've been on nature trails, but they were pretty frequently intersected by highways. It's a huge park though and I keep thinking I just haven't been to the nicest part yet.
I'd be lying if I said I knew exactly where I was but I do know I wasn't too far from the golf course if that is any help. LOL. The golf course is huge. We were past the old house and tennis courts and we ended up on a path. There were no highways where we were. Just nature.

Don't quite understand what you meant to say here.

I dunno maybe it's just me but I only get that feel in some areas in the bronx.

Many recommend moving to East Tremont/West Farms because "the Bronx Zoo is nearby". Most families visit that place only once a year if that.

Or that the neighborhood is full of Botanists and Veterinarians.

Never no hate for BK. never no hate for queens, si or manhattan!!

STOP HATING ON THE BX!!

I wish you'd post in English instead of whatever you call that. But if you think that people don't hate on Brooklyn...your eyes are shut pretty tight. (I happen to agree with you, by the way).
