I don't live in the South Bronx and never would. However the borough does have some good neighborhoods. I would certainly live in Riverdale, Country Club or Woodlawn without hesitation.

I love the Bronx! After Queens it's my favorite borough. It's unpretentious.

Van Cortlandt Park is so beautiful.

I don't need any reminders, the Bronx always treats me good.

Bengali restaurants in Parkchester, especially the spicy fish dishes.

Fort Schulyer and the SUNY school that operates out of there is an interesting visit and the school is really unique.

It seems that Kingsbridge and Riverdale are getting a few new spots.

Kingsbridge:
Kingsbridge Social Club

Riverdale:
The Hill
Buunni Coffee
The good parts of Manhattan are all very dense, and brownstone Brooklyn is very dense too.

Maritime has a free museum, the grounds are open to the public, parking is free. You just stop at the booth and tell the you want to access the grounds, etc.


There's also many community activities hosted; swim classes (beautiful pool), sailing lessons, yoga, etc at very reasonable prices. Slightly before the Maritime entrance is Paddy's on the Bay- good drinks and better food. A great way to spend the day.



Growing up in TN we often spent the day hanging out at Maritime,the zoo, Botanical Gardens or Bartow Pell Mansion (in Pelham Bay Park). So much fun (and free/afforable) things to do in the Bronx.

A good thing about the Bronx? Bronx is the only borough that is part of the American mainland. If. A major disaster was to occur. The other 4 boroughs will be in big trouble. Bronx also played a role in shaping American history. Penmanship of United States constitution Lewis Morris is from the Bronx and he represented the NY delegation for signing it's name to the Constitution. Lincoln Memorial, and capital Hill building were built in the Bronx and shipped in segments. Such structures are emblazoned on our national currency for the world to see. Bronx also invented hip hop.

I'm planning a trip to City Island (outside of the peak season to avoid the traffic and ghetto atmosphere that the summertime brings). Please tell me there's a good place to eat besides those so-called "seafood places"? I want to avoid those like the plague. I'm thinking about doing the French place (BistroSK) that says they're the only "real" French place in the entire Bronx (even if the owner is a total nut job per the reviews). LOL

Outside of that, none of the places wow me. I've been reviewing the Yelp reviews and have not been impressed.
