Which Is YOUR Favorite Bronx Park? ProjectBronx Explores Our Green Oases


Not only is the Bronx the greenest borough in all the realm that is New York City but we also have more open greenspace than any other urban area in the nation.

Pelham Bay Park is the city’s largest park and is more than 3x the size of Central Park with over 2,700 acres and then we have the beautiful Van Cortlandt Park which is the 3rd largest park (nope, Central Park, you’re still smaller. Sorry.). Both of these massive beauties are incredibly steeped in history too.

Ask most outsiders what comes to mind about the Bronx and the last thing you’d expect to hear is anything about our parkland.

For the past month Adam Levine-Peres, founder of ProjectBronx has been asking Bronxites about our local parks and their thoughts on such urban spaces.

Below you’ll find each episode of the 3-part series so you can watch them at your leisure and don’t forget to hit up the comments section and tell us about YOUR favorite Bronx park!
