Back by popular demand! It's high time we had a meetup to The Bronx, the city's only borough whose first European settler was from Scandanavia. The Bronx is the birthplace of hip-hop and has a unique history spanning agriculture to industry, has a wonderful array of cultural attractions, street art, as well as some distinctive public buildings and architecture. Recommendations will be provided for your future visits. We'll start on the South Bronx and learn how the communities has been striving to revitalize -- with artist's spaces and community gardens and newer housing. We'll check out the Mott Haven Historic District, "The Hub," -- South Bronx's downtown -- and head up the Grand Concourse, one of NYC's most magnificent streets with its art deco and beaux arts apartment houses. After a visit to The Bronx Museum of the Arts, we can enjoy an optional dinner in the Belmont neighborhood (the Bronx's authentic "Little Italy")
Note we will be taking the subway up to The Bronx so please have a valid metrocard to save time!
