The Bronx is one of the five boroughs of New York City, as well as a New York State county. The Bronx is a 42-square mile area astride the Bronx River, which divides it into the East Bronx and West Bronx neighborhoods. The densely populated area incorporates residences, industry, retail, and green spaces such as the Bronx Zoo, Woodlawn Cemetery, and the New York Botanical Garden. The Bronx is also home to several institutes of higher education, including Fordham University, City University of New York, and Manhattan College.


European settlers arrived in the Bronx in the 17th century. The area remained rural well into the 19th century, consisting mainly of market farms that supplied fresh produce to the city. Between 1900 and 1930, the borough’s population increased fivefold, thanks to transportation developments such as the 1904 subway extension. An influx of new residents from the city prompted a construction boom to meet housing demands. Stylish Art Deco residences and commercial buildings lined the Grand Concourse, the Bronx’s central thoroughfare. Industry also flourished; by 1919, the Bronx was a center for piano manufacturing, with 61 piano factories in operation. Following the Great Depression, the population declined, and poverty increased. By the late 20th century, the Bronx had become a distressed area, with many vacant properties falling into disrepair. In recent years, there has been an increase in new construction and restoration of historic buildings. The new Yankee Stadium opened in 2009, replacing the venerable 1923 original, and the 1812 Edgar Allan Poe Cottage is undergoing renovations.

The Bronx has experienced several periods of intensive construction activity, putting workers in a high-risk category for exposure to asbestos. We have identified numerous jobsites where asbestos exposure has occurred. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in the Bronx, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Harvey Pass. Additionally, you should know that asbestos law firms represent people from the Bronx who were exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
