More About Northwest Bronx by Bill Twomey; Thomas X. Casey
 
 
 
Overview

Northwest Bronx is home to Wave Hill, Van Cortlandt Park, Woodlawn Cemetery, the New York Botanical Garden, and a variety of colleges and universities. Hunter College served as a training facility during World War II, and Mark Twain, Theodore Roosevelt's family, and Arturo Toscanini once lived at Wave Hill. Pres. John F. Kennedy's boyhood home is only steps from Wave Hill, and George Washington slept at the Van Cortlandt Mansion. Northwest Bronx features an array of vintage photographs of the borough's neighborhoods, from Spuyten Duyvil, Kingsbridge, Riverdale, and Woodlawn to the neighborhoods north of Fordham Road and west of the Bronx River.
