The Bronx was founded by European settler Jonas Bronck in 1639 as farmland and is the only NYC county named after a commoner. Today it covers 42 square miles and has a population of more than 1.4 million people. It is the only borough primarily on the U.S. mainland.
The home of the United Nations was first established in the Bronx in 1946 as a temporary site on the uptown campus of Hunter College, which is currently the site of CUNY Lehman College.
Located in the Baychester section of the Bronx, Co-op City stands as the largest housing complex in the United States with 35 high-rise buildings, over 15,000 apartments housing 50,000 residents, and covering some 320 acres of land. It originally opened in 1968.
The Bronx is recognized as the birthplace of hip-hop and rap, stemming from a pivotal party event at 1520 Sedgwick in 1973. Often referred to as "The Boogie Down Bronx", The Bronx has served as the proving ground for many notable rappers, MCs, and beat box artists.
