Before the summer of 2005, I’d never been to the Bronx on my own. My parents had taken me to the zoo once when we visited the relatives but all I remember from that visit was that I got a helium balloon and lost it. What I saw in summer 2005 has made me always fond of that borough.
But I’m really bummed because the boss lost all my Bronx photos that didn’t make it into the eBook, so I’m adding some photos that aren’t mine that show why the Bronx is my favorite borough. The first 8 snaps are mine; the rest are fair use snaps.
