Continuing their New York Boroughs history segment, WNYC is focusing on the Bronx this week. You can view one man’s photographs of the Bronx and listen to the audio of his story here. And just like they did for Brooklyn, you can post questions for the Bronx historian Lloyd Ultan here.
Naturally, we have a number of books and other resources available at Hunter if you have an interest in the Bronx. Here are a few titles to get you started – click on the cover image to link to the call number or e-book record (if available.) If you want to browse items about the Bronx, in CUNY+ select “keyword in subject” from the drop-down search menu and enter “Bronx” in the search box.
