Bronx, New York
Of the five New York City boroughs, the Bronx is located the farthest north. The Bronx got its name from Jonas Bronck, an early Swedish settler and landowner for whom the Bronx River was also named. With just over 1.4 million residents, it is the second least populous borough, though it contains almost one million more people than the least populous borough, Staten Island. While small in comparison to the other boroughs, the Bronx has a massive population squeezed into a 42-square-mile area, which makes it the third most densely populated county in the United States. Despite all of those people, the Bronx still has plenty of natural spaces like the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo. The Zoo is a famous animal preserve and was created in 1899, which makes it one of the oldest zoos in the country. Of course, the Bronx is perhaps most well-known for being the home of Yankee Stadium and the New York Yankees Major League Baseball team. The Yankees have a storied history, and have counted many of the game's all-time greats among its players, including: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, and modern superstars like Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, and Alex Rodriguez. This northernmost borough is also home to campuses for Fordham University, the City University of New York, Yeshiva University, and several other institutes of higher learning.
