Old Bronx pics are amazing.
The Bronx of 100 years ago was very different but in some ways very similar.
Much of the West Bronx was developed, the street grid we’re familiar with today was already pretty much laid out as well as the subways we ride today.
At a glance, it looks very similar on the surface but when you head on over to the East Bronx, the differences can be huge.
The neighborhoods east of the Bronx River didn’t develop until well into the 20th century (with a few exceptions) when the subway was extended. Up until then, it was mostly farmland and estates.
While perusing New York Public Library’s Digital Collection, we came across these old Bronx pics we’d thought you’d like to see and catch a glimpse of our borough long before any of us were around.
