The Bronx Historical Society presents the next in their series about the Bronx focusing on the NY years of Edgar Allan Poe.

This Month:
The Birth of the Bronx, Part 2

The Birth of The Bronx examines the first 300 years of our borough; from 1639, when the first Europeans came to live in the area, it grew steadily from a collection of isolated frontier settlements to established colonial farms, past the terror of the American Revolution, to the creation of a suburban area undergoing increasing urbanization to become part of the thriving metropolis.
