The Bronx is a borough which is often overlooked by locals, and almost never visited by tourists save for a trip to Yankee Stadium or the Bronx Zoo.
Due to it’s relatively unknown beauty, authors and local historians Lloyd Ultan and Shelley Olson have created a new guide book titled The Bronx: The Ultimate Guide to New York City’s Beautiful Borough to help spread the word.
The Bronx—which includes thirty-six color photographs—provides visitors with informative chapters on more than twelve of the borough’s extraordinary destinations as well as self-guided walking tours of some of the most ethnically, architecturally, and historically diverse neighborhoods. History buffs will find beautifully preserved eighteenth- and nineteenth-century homes, the Hall of Fame for Great Americans (which pays homage to many familiar faces in American history), and Woodlawn Cemetery (the final resting place for prominent Americans including Duke Ellington, Joseph Pulitzer, Gloria Vanderbilt Whitney, and Thomas Nast). In addition to the botanical garden, nature lovers can enjoy the beautiful Pelham Bay Park and Van Cortlandt Park. The Bronx also highlights the surprising number of art galleries, museums, and performance venues that visitors are sure to enjoy, further demonstrating the borough’s cultural prominence.
