New York City is comprised of five distinct boroughs, and each borough is made of dozens of neighborhoods. Northwest Bronx has a particularly rich history and is home to Wave Hill, Van Cortlandt Park, Woodlawn Cemetery, the New York Botanical Garden, and a variety of colleges and universities. Famous Americans from all walks of life took up roost here-- Mark Twain, Theodore Roosevelt's family, and Arturo Toscanini once lived at Wave Hill, while John F. Kennedy's boyhood home is only steps away, 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.
