Bronx , more commonly called "The Bronx," is one of the five boroughs of New York City and also the name of a county. It is the northernmost borough, hilly and mostly residential, and the only one entirely on the mainland. The Bronx is bounded by the Hudson River, Spuyten Duyvil Creek, the Harlem River, the East River, and Long Island Sound. Founded in 1641, The Bronx became part of New York City in 1898, and was the home of poet/author Edgar Allan Poe from 1846 - 1849. It's a diverse, eclectic city with over 60 landmarks, miles of parks, and interesting historical districts. It's the place where salsa music and break dancing were born. Twenty-four percent of The Bronx is parklands - that's more than any other urban area in the U.S. It's famous for its zoo, which is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States with more than 6,000 animals and award-winning exhibits such as Jungle World and an incredible indoor rain forest. One of the most exciting exhibits is the Congo Gorilla Forest where visitors can get nose-to-nose with Western Lowland gorillas. Other attractions specific to The Bronx include the New York Botanical Gardens, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum and Gardens, Edgar Allen Poe Cottage, and The Hall of Fame for Great Americans.

Bronx Weather & Climate

Manhattan and the surrounding area have four seasons of changeable weather. Summers are often hot and muggy and last until September. Temperatures usually soar to near 100 degrees F. for a week to ten days in mid-July to mid-August. Another uncomfortable time to visit New York City is during January and February when temps are often in the 20s and the concrete canyons of the city can turn into wind tunnels. Otherwise, the rest of the year the weather is comfortable, with March usually being the rainiest month. May offers great weather - just warm enough for walking around but cool enough to remain comfortable. Autumn has more sunshine than spring, although both are clear and bright. New York City is magical at Christmas time and the changing leaves of fall makes it a beautiful time to visit the area.
