    Little Italy in the Bronx is the best place to go to have an "Italian-American" experience. If you plan to do some shopping with some lunch added in you must go to Tino's Deli on Arthur Avenue. You ca...  more »

    I lived around Arthur Avenue for three years when I was in NY. It was my first home in the States. A historical neighborhood (over 112 years!) that has a lot of culture - as well as a great diversity of culture. Many of my neighbors had spent most of their life here --- though not in my building. Stop by one of the restaurants or barbershops or cheese shops or bars and you will discover layers of histories --- how people came to settle down here from different continents years ago. A few steps to the New York Botanical Garden (, my favorite spot for a walk, about 15 minutes by walking, ) the Bronx Zoo, and to the subway stations. They celebrated San Antonio Day and Little Italy Day annually, with a lot of music and bright colors. Plus there were some mom-and-pop Italian restaurants that offered classic, richly flavored heroes, pizzas, pastries, and desserts. Life was hard in New York but it was absolutely memorable.

    The food is yummy and the scenery is a nice break from the skyscraper riddled city.

Where to stay in Bronx

The Bronx is home to a number of mid-range hotels, bed and breakfasts, and inns. As is the case anywhere in the city, eager sightseers should look for something close to a subway station for easy access to the city’s many attractions. However, you should be aware that these areas often get busy and noisy in the morning with commuters. A vacation rental provides a home away from home and plenty of amenities, and many are located in residential neighborhoods that will help you get off the tourist trail.
