The Bronx to me:
The Bronx is many things to me. It was once my home. It holds my church. It holds many newfound and longstanding memories. My friends, family, people I’ve met along the way, you have all made my time in the Bronx great.

Be sure to look at my NYC and Yonkers pages with this one as to me they are becoming one big city. I understand the differences but they are all with in walking distance for me so all pages will include some info on the other.

My Bronx Girl

My wife was born and raised in the Bronx and her family still lives here. When I met her new and unexplored areas of the Bronx were all of a sudden brought to light. Having lived over twenty plus years in the Bronx, Liz knows all the nooks and crannies that someone not from the area might never discover. I like to joke that I never ventured into her part of the Bronx before since it was the wrong side of the track from where I lived in the Bronx (I get smacked for that, she's very Bronx proud as are most who are from this area).

Bronx Times

SInce we both have family and friends in the Bronx we are here often hanging out, shopping or grabbing a bite to eat. There are so many good reaturants and places to see in the Bronx if you just take the time to explore.

    The greatest choke in American sports history! What happened? I'll tell you...the Yanks met a better opponent: The Boston Red Sox. I can't wait to see what happens in 2005.

    You're not a Yankees fan, are you? I only found about 10 or 12 references to them in your pages, so I'm not sure. Great pic of Yankee Stadium. Go Giants.
