Exploring Gems of The Bronx

WaveHill1
The Bronx is named for Jonas Bronck, who established the first community in the area in 1639.  In addition to great enduring icons such as Yankee Stadium and the New York Botanical Garden, the Bronx includes many other places worth visiting.
The northern borough is home to the third largest park in New York City,Van Cortlandt Park. Its 1,146 acres abound with attractions for all ages to enjoy. Among the most popular is Van Cortlandt Lake, the largest body of freshwater in the Bronx. Its upper basin can be appreciated from Van Cortlandt Golf Course, which made history as the nation’s first municipal golf course when it opened in 1895. Visitors will also enjoy Van Cortlandt House Museum, Van Cortlandt Nature Center and several sports fields, running trails, a multi-use stadium, a pool and the Riverdale Stables.
The sprawling Woodlawn Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark, is the beautiful last home of Irving Berlin, Herman Melville, Duke Ellington and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, among others. Designed by the nation’s most accomplished architects, landscape designers and sculptors, its monuments and mausoleums are widely received.
The New York Botanical Garden, also a National Historic Landmark, founded in 1891, also calls the Bronx its home. The NYBG is the largest such institution in the United States, offering an overwhelming number of things to see and do, including rotating exhibits and installations. This summer’s centerpiece is “Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawaii.”
Spread over 265 acres, the Bronx Zoo is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States. Located within Bronx Park, the zoo is world-renowned for its large and diverse animal collection from all corners of the world as well as its award-winning exhibitions. Dedicate a full day to visit but if it is not possible, make sure to see the Himalayan Highlands, Tiger Mountain and World of Reptiles habitats.
Among its cultural institutions is the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Located in the Grand Concourse Historic District, the museum opened in 1971 and focuses on contemporary art. Also worth visiting is the delightful Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center where visitors can learn how to care for cactuses and also enjoy the sounds of a string trio and afternoon high tea.
Home to the Bronx Bombers, fans can enjoy a Yankees game but also take guided tours of Yankee Stadium. Tours range from “classic” individual and group tours to the “inside experience” package.

Hollywood Scenes In Central Park 😎🎬🎥

BrownSugar

New York City’s world-famous Central Park has served as the backdrop for a long list of famous movies. Spend an afternoon strolling through the park while taking note of the locations where your favorite movies scenes were captured.

Nestled at the southeast corner of Central Park, the 20-story luxury hotel, The Plaza Hotel, had its first significant movie role in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 classic, North By Northwest. Since then The Plaza has been featured in many films including Almost Famous, Home Alone II: Lost In New-York and King of New York.

Wollman Skating Rink, a favorite attraction since it opened in 1949, is one of two ice skating rinks in Central Park. Wollman Rink has been a popular spot for Hollywood movies including Love Story, Serendipity and Home Alone II.

Known as the only straight line in Central Park, the 40-foot-wide Mall, also known as the Promenade, is framed by a quadruple row of American Elm trees, making it one of the park’s most visited and photographed sections. Movies such as Maid in Manhattan, Kramer vs. Kramer and Brown Sugar featured scenes filmed at the Mall.

The Bethesda Terrace and Bethesda Fountain are a pleasant spot to relax as well as reminisce of the long list of films that were filmed there: The Avengers, Elf, Enchanted, Stuart Little II and That’s How You Know.

Since 1905, the iconic outdoor amphitheater, the Naumburg Bandshell, has been hosting free orchestral concerts in Central Park. The site of a speech delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. and a eulogy read for John Lennon, the Bandshell has become a place of historical importance within the park. Hollywood has captured its beauty in Hair, I’m Not Rappaport, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Mighty Aphrodite.

Crafted of cast iron, Bow Bridge is one of Central Park’s most famous and romantic landmarks. Bow Bridge has been featured in Spiderman 3, Autumn in New York and Made of Honor. Connecting to Cherry Hill, pedestrians step off the walkway into a bounty of cherry trees and the location of The Mirror has Two Faces, Big Daddy, Cruel Intentions and Little Manhattan.

Once the sheepfold for the sheep of Sheep Meadow, Tavern on the Green became a restaurant in the 1930s. Tavern on the Green is also known for its appearances in films such as Wall Street, Ghostbusters and Mr. Popper’s Penguins.
