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.
