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

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

Frank Pinello has eaten his share of pizza in Manhattan and Brooklyn, but it's time for him to check out New York City's other boroughs—Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx—to discover some of the city's best slices and pies. We start off in Queens with our favorite Renaissance man Action Bronson for a slice tour of two of his favorite places. Then we're off to Staten Island with VICE security guard and foodie extraordinaire Vic Zagami to get some crispy bar pies and the legendary vodka pie at Goodfella's. The episode ends with a visit to the Bronx for a walk down Arthur Avenue with Mark Iacono, Frank's favorite pizza friend. Frank and Mark's walk is filled with fresh cheese, prosciutto, clams, tripe—and, of course, more pizza.

The word Bronx places two very distinct pictures in the heads of those hearing it. Some imagine a highly functional place, where the government’s revitalization efforts really bore fruits. For others, this borough of New York will forever be associated with crime, violence, and the dangerous lifestyle typical of most of the 60s and 70s. Most importantly, in no particular order, here’s a list of the 10 government-managed housing complexes that you should always try to avoid!

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

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.

Driving Downtown Neighborhoods - Little Italy - Bronx New York City NY USA - Episode 8. Starting Point: Arthur Avenue - https://goo.gl/maps/KGmUm8FcRtL2 . Arthur Avenue is a street in the Belmont section of the Bronx, New York City's northernmost borough. It was once the heart of the Bronx's "Little Italy". "Little Italy" generally refers to Arthur Avenue and East 187th Street.[1] 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. 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.

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.

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.

It is also the newest of the 62 counties of New York State. Located northeast of Manhattan and south of Westchester County, New York, the Bronx is the only borough not primarily located on an island. In 2009, the Census Bureau estimated that the borough's population on July 1, 2008 was 1,391,903,[1] inhabiting a land area of 42 square miles (109 square kilometers). This makes the Bronx the fourth-most-populated of the five boroughs, the fourth-largest in land area, and the third-highest in density of population. The Bronx is divided by the Bronx River into a hillier section in the west, closer to Manhattan, and the flatter East Bronx, closer to Queens and Long Island. The West Bronx was annexed to New York City (then largely confined to Manhattan) in 1874, and the areas east of the Bronx River in 1895.[5] The Bronx first assumed a distinct legal identity when it became a borough of Greater New York in 1898. Bronx County (the County of Bronx), with the same boundaries as the borough, was separated from New York County (today coextensive with the Borough of Manhattan) in 1912 and began its own operations in January 1914. Although the Bronx is the third-most-densely-populated county in the U.S. about a quarter of its area is open space, 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, on land deliberately reserved in the late 19th century as urban development progressed northwards and eastwards from Manhattan with the building of roads, bridges and railways. The Bronx River was named for Jonas Bronck, an early settler from Småland in Sweden whose land bordered the river on the east. The borough of The Bronx was named for the river that was "Bronk's River". The indigenous Lenape (Delaware) American Indians were progressively displaced after 1643 by settlers from the Netherlands and Great Britain. The Bronx received many Irish, German, Jewish and Italian immigrants as its once-rural population exploded between the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries. They were succeeded after 1945 by African Americans and Hispanic Americans, together with immigrants from the Caribbean — especially Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. In recent years, this cultural mix has made the Bronx a wellspring of both Latin music and hip hop. The Bronx contains one of the five poorest Congressional Districts in the U.S., (the 16th), but its wide variety of neighborhoods also includes the affluent Riverdale and Country Club. 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, but has shown some signs of revival in recent years. For generations a rural area of small farms supplying the city markets, The Bronx grew into a railroad suburb in the late 19th century. Faster transportation allowed for rapid population growth in the late 19th century, involving the move from horse-drawn street cars to elevated railways to the subway system, which linked to Manhattan in 1904. The great majority lived in rented apartments. The demographic history of The Bronx in the 20th century may be divided into four periods: a boom during 1900-29, with a population growth by a factor of six from 200,000 in 1900 to 1.3 million in 1930. The Great Depression and war years saw a slowing of growth during 1930-49. The 1950s were hard times, as The Bronx decayed 1950-79 from a predominantly middle-class to a predominantly lower-class area with high rates of crime, poverty, and despair. Finally The Bronx has enjoyed economic and demographic stabilization since 1980. At the end of World War I, the Bronx hosted the rather small 1918 World's Fair at 177th Street and DeVoe Avenue. The Bronx underwent rapid growth after World War I. Extensions of the New York City Subway contributed to the increase in population as thousands of immigrants flooded The Bronx, resulting in a major boom in residential construction. Among these groups, many Irish Americans, Italian Americans and especially Jewish Americans settled here. In addition, French, German, and Polish immigrants moved into the borough. The Jewish population also increased notably during this time. In 1937, according to Jewish organizations, 592,185 Jews lived in The Bronx (43.9% of the borough's population), while only 45,000 Jews lived in the borough in 2002. Many synagogues still stand in The Bronx, but most have been converted to other uses.
