WHAT DOES THE BRONX MEAN IN ENGLISH?

the Bronx

The Bronx

The Bronx is the northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City, in the U.S. state of New York. Coextensive with Bronx County, it was the last of the 62 counties of New York State to be incorporated. Located north of Manhattan and Queens, and south of Westchester County, the Bronx is the only borough that is located primarily on the mainland. The Bronx's population was 1,385,108 according to the 2010 United States Census, increasing to a Census-estimated 1,418,733 by 2013. The borough has a land area of 42 square miles, making it the fourth-largest inland area of the five boroughs, the fourth most populated, and the third-highest in population density. The Bronx is divided by the Bronx River into a hillier section in the west, closer to Manhattan, and the flatter eastern section, closer to Long Island. Technically, the West Bronx is divided from the East Bronx by Jerome Avenue—the continuation of Manhattan's Fifth Avenue—making the West Bronx roughly one-eighth the size of the East Bronx. The West Bronx was annexed to New York City in 1874, and the areas east of the Bronx River were annexed in 1895.
