The Bronx Flavor – Events in the Bronx NYC
The Bronx, NYC is one of the city’s five boroughs and, as with the other four, the Bronx is an intriguing and exciting world of its own when it comes to events. There are more yearly events taking place in the Bronx than is possible to list adequately so we will highlight by month those that we feel enhance the unique flavor of the Bronx; even though this leaves out so many other fantastic “must see” Bronx events.
January: The Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show.
So, we flagged this for January, but the Holiday Train Show is a favorite tradition for New Yorkers and lasts from late November through late January. An absolute must for model train fanciers or anyone fascinated with the beauty of New York City. Be warned: make reservations because this is a popular event!
