I live in Bronx, New York. I've lived here all of my life. People don't know much about the Bronx other than what they see on the theater screen. However, The Bronx has a lot to offer. I am also a lover of cemeteries, I know, it's a strange fascination. There are a lot of famous people buried in The Bronx. Here are a few:
