The Bronx is the northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City, coterminous with Bronx County and the last of the 62 counties of New York State to be incorporated, originally part of Westchester County. Bronx is the third most densely populated county in the U.S.A. and about a quarter of its area is open space, including Van Cortlandt Park, Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo. Several colleges and universities are located in the Bronx.
