The Bronx used to be more industrial and those old buildings have been renovated. The Bronx has become an art colony more or less, like in DUMBO. Brooklyn is more residential, probably safer and family flavored. I'd visit Brooklyn first if your looking for a safer place to visit.

I like cemeteries too. Can you get to it reasonably easy from the Metro or is it more of a car trip?

Thanks. Is the cemetery doable by Metro?
