    ‘Little Italy of The Bronx’
    Belmont & Arthur Avenue

    $19.95

    Belmont,
    The Neighborhood Where Everybody Knew Your Name . . .
    And Even Your Nickname

    Of the fifty distinct neighborhoods of The Bronx, the most populated and close family-knit enclave was the 10-square-block area called Belmont & Arthur Avenue, “The Little Italy of The Bronx.” And here, among the pages of this book, you’ll see the places that drew, and still draw people by the thousands to shop, eat, and sight-see.

    Mario’s, Dominick’s, Catania’s for great pizza, the Savoy Movie House, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. The teeming streets of people during the Feast of St. Anthony. This was home to one of the greatest groups of Rock & Roll, Dion and The Belmonts.

    It was a neighborhood where everyone looked out for one another. And you can tour it through this book. Through these pages, you’ll travel along a historic part of The Bronx that’s still alive and well. And the great part about it is that you don’t have to be Italian to love it.

    In “The Bronx: Then & Now,” you will see the buildings, stores, movies, intersections, and entire blocks that have changed or even vanished since the days you grew up in The Bronx. But they still are there, alive and well preserved for posterity, within the pages of this beautifully bound book, “The Bronx: Then and Now.”

    Some of the hundreds of stories in the bound books include trolleys on Southern Boulevard (and other Bronx locations), or the El on Third Avenue, playing in Crotona Park, Macombs Dam Park, or the largest park in New York City, Pelham Bay Park. Remember the summer trips to Orchard Beach, Shorehaven, and/or Castle Hill Pool, or a day at Yankee Stadium? We also revisit Freedomland, the Paradise and other local movie theatres, and travel to the restaurants of Belmont and Arthur Avenue, like Mario’s or Dominick’s, then shopping at Alexander’s, followed by a hot fudge sundae at Krum’s, a ‘Kitchen Sink’ at Jahn’s, or a frankfurter at Gorman’s. You will even find stories from your neighborhood, or the old block, and even, quite possibly, your apartment building or candy store. When this happens, our readers tell us it is like an old neighborhood block party all over again.

    And, with an additional 300 pictures in “Then & Now,” you can visit the old neighborhoods, candy stores, apartment buildings, department stores, schools, and 50 photos of movie theaters – the way they were then and the way they are now after years of changing.

    Even though so much of The Bronx has changed or is even gone, the special memories have been captured and preserved with rare and authentic photographs within every page of Back In THE BRONX magazine and “The Bronx: Then & Now.”

    “The Bronx: Lost, Found, and Remembered” contains over 400 never-before-seen pictures from 1935-1975 that will stir your imagination with warm memories and wonderful thoughts of your days in The Bronx.

    “The Complete Bound Book Volume II” comprises over 200 wonderful nostalgic stories with over 400 vintage photos from the 1930s to the 1960s. Are you looking for some “special” person or persons from the past? With close to 2,000 classified ads, the chances are very good you’ll reconnect with that someone or someones.

    Every order comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee!

    Any submissions of stories, letters and/or photos will be accepted only with Back In THE BRONX magazine having the non-exclusive rights to publish in its magazine and/or in reprints and anthologies and/or in future books containing the compilation of previous magazine issues.

    2-Disc DVD Set
    A View From THE STOOP & Memories From THE STOOP
    Expanded with All New Material

    3 Hours Running Time
    Narrated by Marvin Scott, Broadcast Journalist & Bronx Native

    Looking at the past through rose-colored glasses is an expression that doesn’t apply to those who grew up and came of age in The Bronx (the only borough that requires an introduction!). Our precious memories are proof-positive that those rosy glasses just aren’t necessary.

    Back In THE BRONX is extremely proud to present a brand new DOUBLE DVD collection of nostalgic memoirs culled from over 50 hours of transport tapes, home movies, and film clips from our readers, along with additions to our photo gallery of over 7,000 Bronx neighborhood pictures, many of which are a contribution from New York City’s Municipal Archives.

    Back In THE BRONX Board Game

    $42.95

    You're looking at more than a board game.
    This is a trip. A first-class journey back to your childhood.

    Land on places that will jog your memory, pitch pennies, flick bottle caps in Skulley, play jacks, make an egg cream, get sent to detention and lose a turn. When you play this fun-packed game, you get to relive those special moments of your past.

    You'll land on squares that can earn or lose you points. You'll bounce an authentic and rare 'spaldeen' to hit the penny, aim a marble for the hole, trade cards.

    This is a game of skill and savvy for everyone, where grandparents can play with their grandchildren. What better chance than this to let them experience the times and fun that you went through? All the more to better understand and bring you closer together.

    Comes with a 22-inch-square game board, over 50 images on the board, and over 50 cards, including popular public high schools, movie theatres, landmark buildings and many familiar Bronx locations.

    This beautiful board was designed and created by Martin Tobias, whose artwork has been represented by numerous art dealers, publishers and distributors, including Christie’s of London.

    Begin the journey and the joy by getting this unique game that brings back the beauty that once was your Bronx.

    Bronx Movie Theatres Poster

    $14.95

    Revisit yesteryear with this poster featuring actual photographs of more than 100 Bronx movie theatres.

    Remember those magic Saturdays, when you would hurry to finish your Ralston or Wheateena? Your mother would pack your lunch and you'd be off for a whole day of a double feature, a newsreel, a chapter, a western and cartoons . . . all for the price of 15 cents.

    And when you got older, you spent a little more on a date at The Paradise, with a finale at Krum's or Jahn's. All those great movies had posters and advertisements and credits.

    But nobody ever gave credit to the places that showed these films. Not until now. This big, bold, beautiful, 22-by-28-inch poster will remind you of those great places: The Crest in Highbridge, the Savoy in Belmont, the Kingsbridge Theatre, and the RKOs, like Fordham, Spooner, 167th Street, Burnside, Elsmere, Fairmount, National, Post Road, and others. Plus all those mouth-watering confections that were sold there, like Bonomos Turkish Taffy, Zagnut Bar, Jujubes, buttons and candy cigars. Order this great gift and a must-own item because it keeps a treasured piece of history with you. A piece of history that you will never find in a book.
