A tongue-in-cheek demo of New York City's varied accents by each borough: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan. I explain not only how to make the sounds but more importantly, the psychological reason behind them - sorta : ). Voiced my me, a NYC native - this is the real deal folks! Ratings appreciated. p.s. I know it s/b "you're" not "your" & that the map of Brooklyn is too small (on the left) but it was too late to fix. I did not attempt African American/Latino accents as I can't do them justice. Thanks for watching. :p

Collect Moments, Not Things - https://goo.gl/eT72FS Driving Downtown - Bronx New York City New York USA - Episode 40. Starting Point: https://goo.gl/maps/8gNbo8irtR82 . The Bronx is the northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City, within the U.S. state of New York. The Bronx contains one of the five poorest Congressional Districts in the United States, the 15th, but its wide diversity also includes affluent, upper-income and middle-income neighborhoods such as Riverdale, Fieldston, Spuyten Duyvil, Schuylerville, Pelham Bay, Pelham Gardens, Morris Park and Country Club.[10][11] The Bronx, particularly the South Bronx, saw a sharp decline in population, livable housing, and the quality of life in the late 1960s and the 1970s, culminating in a wave of arson. Since then the communities have shown significant redevelopment starting in the late 1980s before picking up pace from the 1990s until today. About a quarter of the Bronx's area is open space,[5] including Woodlawn Cemetery, Van Cortlandt Park, Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo in the borough's north and center. These open spaces are situated primarily on land deliberately reserved in the late 19th century as urban development progressed north and east from Manhattan. The name "Bronx" originated with Jonas Bronck, who established the first settlement in the area as part of the New Netherland colony in 1639.[6][7][8] The native Lenape were displaced after 1643 by settlers. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the Bronx received many immigrant groups as it was transformed into an urban community, first from various European countries (particularly Ireland, Germany and Italy) and later from the Caribbean region (particularly Puerto Rico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic), as well as African American migrants from the southern United States.[9] This cultural mix has made the Bronx a wellspring of both Latin music and hip hop. Revitalization In 1997, the Bronx was designated an All America City by the National Civic League, acknowledging its comeback from the decline of the mid-century.[65] In 2006, The New York Times reported that "construction cranes have become the borough's new visual metaphor, replacing the window decals of the 1980s in which pictures of potted plants and drawn curtains were placed in the windows of abandoned buildings."[66] The borough has experienced substantial new building construction since 2002. Between 2002 and June 2007, 33,687 new units of housing were built or were under way and $4.8 billion has been invested in new housing. In the first six months of 2007 alone total investment in new residential development was $965 million and 5,187 residential units were scheduled to be completed. Much of the new development is springing up in formerly vacant lots across the South Bronx.[67] Sports The Bronx is the home of the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bronx https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g47369-Activities-Bronx_New_York.html http://www.nycgo.com/boroughs-neighborhoods/the-bronx

Two days after Hurricane Sandy hit New York City, there is life in Arthur Avenue. Although the subway is under water, the buses are up and running again. - Arthur Avenue is a street in the Fordham section of New York City's northernmost borough, The Bronx. It was once the heart of the Bronx's "Little Italy". "Little Italy" generally refers to Arthur Avenue and East 187th Street. Although the historical and commercial center of Little Italy is Arthur Avenue itself, the area stretches across East 187th Street from Arthur Avenue to Prospect Avenue, and is similarly lined with delis, bakeries, cafes and various Italian merchants. Arthur Avenue and Morris Park are viewed as the Bronx's primary Italian-American communities. Other Italian-American communities in the Bronx are the middle and upper-class neighborhoods of Schuylerville and Country Club.

The Bronx: Portrait of a borough A documentary by Christian Papesch The Bronx is infamous for being one of the poorest Congressional Districts in the United States. In no other county of the 62 in the state of New York is the unemployment rate as high, and the average income as low, as in New York City's fourth-largest borough. Ismael Betancourt Jr. who received his B.S. from Columbia University, his MBA from the Harvard University Graduate School of Business and his MA in Political Science from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, founded the Bronx Transformation Project last year. Its goal is to facilitate cooperation, trade, integration and development among and between the different cultural communities in and beyond the borders of Bronx. For his documentary, "The Bronx", IPS correspondent Christian Papesch visited Betancourt, his borough and its people. He met a teacher from Puerto Rico, an Imam from West Africa and the Catholic editor of an Islamic newspaper. And he portrays a district that is multicultural, self-confident and far from being as pessimistic as its statistics may suggest. a film by Christian Papesch www.christian-papesch.de produced for Inter Press Service News Agency ipsnews.net Music: Shanel - Birds inside us beat

Driving Downtown Streets - Third Avenue - Bronx New York City NY USA - Episode 51. Starting Point: https://goo.gl/maps/ZzUcsRhrfPN2 . The South Bronx is an area of the New York City borough of the Bronx. Revitalization and Current Concerns Beginning in the late 1980s, parts of the South Bronx started to experience urban renewal with rehabilitated and brand new residential structures, including both subsidized multifamily town homes and apartment buildings.[29] The Bright Temple A.M.E. Church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[30] Over 1 billion US dollars were spent on rebuilding the area through the 1990s, with 19,000 apartments having been refurbished and more than 4,500 new houses having been built for the working class. More than fifty abandoned apartment buildings on the Major Deegan Expressway and the Cross Bronx Expressway were renovated for residential use. Over 26,500 people moved into the area.[20] On Charlotte Street, prefabricated ranch-style homes were built in the area in 1985,[31] and the area had changed so significantly that the Bronx borough historian could not locate where Carter had stopped to survey the scene. As of 2004, homes on the street were worth up to a million dollars.[28] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Bronx The Bronx is the northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City, within the U.S. state of New York.

Unlike the ''Little Italy'' neighborhood in Manhattan, which has become a major tourist destination, the Bronx's ''Little Italy'' is considered ''The real Little Italy'' due to its Italian immigrant heritage which dates back to the 1950s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Avenue The Bronx is the northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City, within the U.S. state of New York.

In the 1970s, the Bronx was in a sharp decline. Poverty has high, property values were low, and the borough suffered from a wave of arson. It took decades for the area to recover from its mid-century decline. Today, the Bronx Is a flourishing hub for startups, social enterprises and community based solutions. For many, the rise of technology and social media were the keys to bringing their businesses to life and shedding a light to the outer boroughs.

The New-York Historical Society and NYC Media, the official network of the City of New York, have partnered to produce a special series of one minute videos that feature the staff of the New York Historical Society as they answer some of the most captivating questions ever posed to them about the City's fascinating and unique history. How Did the Boroughs Get Their Names? The names of the boroughs reflect the Native American, Dutch and English past of the city of Manhattan. Manhattan comes from Native American nomenclature, "Manhatta" and out of that we get Manhattan. Staten Island comes from calling the island "Staten Eylandt," and that was called after the state general assembly in the Netherlands. The Bronx is named after Jonas Bronck, a sea captain who became a farmer and settled in the Bronx. Brooklyn is named after a tiny village in the Netherlands and Queens is named after Queen Borganza, who was the wife of Charles the Second of England.
