Take Me Out to the Ball Game

<p>The Bronx hosts one of the worldÕs most popular sports teams: The New York Yankees. The iconic baseball team has played in south Bronx since 1923, almost entirely in one ballpark. It wasnÕt until 2012 that the team moved to the new Yankee Stadium, a state-of-the-art park that cost a whopping $1.5 billion. The modern stadium and the historic team remain a very important part to the BronxÕs culture and economy.</p>

Experience Italy

<p>Arthur Avenue is often considered the center of Italian-American culture in New York, much more than Manhattan's touristy and less authentic Little Italy. The area stretches across a larger area than its Manhattan counterpart and is similarly lined with delis, bakeries, cafes, and various Italian merchants. Tourists often make the trek from Manhattan to get a taste of real Italian cuisine.</p>

City Island

<p>City Island, located on the far western end of Long Island Sound, is a maritime enclave in Bronx, NY. Resembling a small New England fishing village and inhabited by fewer than 5000 residents, the island is a unique community known for its great seafood restaurants and antique shops. The small island boasts four yacht clubs, one of which hosts Columbia University's Sailing Team. While part of New York City, it has a surprising variety of wildlife, with an amazing breadth of seabirds. An easy drive from Manhattan puts you in a quaint seaside community within minutes.</p>
