You may wonder where's the Bronx? The Bronx is up and the Battery's down goes the song. Ie, the Bronx (da Bronx) is North of Manhattan. One of the five boroughs that make up New York City, fourth in population with only 800,000 citizens. Where are all the others, you might ask? I understand most made it out alive.
Who the hell comes from the Bronx? You ask. Besides SJ of course. And Me. Try Ed McBain. Try Mary Higgins Clark. Try Penny Marshall. Okay, so she's not too mystery related.
How about Edgar Allan Poe? Wrote some of his most famous poetry while living in the Bronx. Mostly about going crazy.
Expect Bronx memories from me for a while to come. Can you tell I'm excited? Me a little Puerto Rican kid who grew up in one of the worst neighborhoods in a tough city and now I'm...anthologized!
