Within the footnotes of "Island at the Center of the World" was the answer of the long-awaited question of where the word "Mosholu" comes from!! (It was originally a name for an Indian village, but is the name of a parkway near Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx!). My reaction was to look up and tell everyone else in my train car! 😉 Mystery solved! 📚

Throooowwwwwbbbaaaccckkkk! From the @NYDailyNews: "In 2014, The Jonas Bronck's Beer Co., maker of authentic Bronx craft beer,  unveiled a nostalgic new egg cream brew at The Bronx Beer Hall during NYC Craft Beer Week to rave reviews. For the uninitiated, the egg cream does not actually contain an egg. The beverage is made by adding chocolate syrup (@foxsubet) and milk to seltzer. 'It was tremendous,' said Anthony Ramirez II, 'People love it. It’s a lighter stout, and it has that great dessert-quality chocolate taste to it.'" Mmmmmmmm. Dessert-quality chocolate. 🍺🍫🍺🍫

The Bronx

#TheBronx is the northernmost of the five #boroughs of #NewYorkCity, within the U.S. state of #NewYork. It is geographically south of #WestchesterCounty; north and east of the island and borough of #Manhattan to the south and west across the #HarlemRiver; and north of the borough of #Queens, across the #EastRiver. Of the five boroughs, the #Bronx is the only one that has the majority of its area on the U.S. mainland. Since 1914, the Bronx has had the same boundaries as #BronxCounty, a county of New York.

The Bronx is divided by the #BronxRiver into a hillier section in the west, closer to Manhattan, and a flatter eastern section, closer to #LongIsland. East and west street addresses are divided by #JeromeAvenue—the continuation of Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. The West Bronx was annexed to New York City in 1874, and the areas east of the Bronx River in 1895. Bronx County was separated from New York County in 1914. About a quarter of the Bronx's area is open space, including #WoodlawnCemetery, Van Cortlandt Park, Pelham Bay Park, the New York Botanical Garden, and the Bronx Zoo in the borough's north and center. These open spaces are situated primarily on land deliberately reserved in the late #19thcentury as urban development progressed north and east from Manhattan.

The name "Bronx" originated with #JonasBronck, who established the first #settlement in the area as part of the #NewNetherland colony in 1639. The native Lenape were displaced after 1643 by settlers. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the Bronx received many immigrant groups as it was transformed into an #urban community, first from various European countries (particularly Ireland, Germany, and Italy) and later from the Caribbean region (particularly Puerto Rico, Haiti, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic), as well as African American migrants from the southern United States. This #culturalmix has made the Bronx a wellspring of both Latin music and #hiphop.

"In 1639, settler Jonas Bronck purchased 500 acres of land from natives. The natives called the area Ranachqua, “the end place," and the river that would also bear Bronck's name was known as Aquahung, "river of high bluffs." Bronk called his estate Emmaus, after a place in the Bible, and constructed his house overlooking the Bronx Kill and Hell Gate, near what is now 132nd Street and Lincoln Avenue. Other settlers started calling the area Bronck's Land, which was later Anglicized to The Bronx. Bronck was successful in trading beaver pelts and had a grand plan to grow tobacco on his farm, but this was cut short by his premature death. His family’s motto was Ne Cede Malis, “do not yield to evil,” which was a quote from the Aeneid. In 1912, Bronx Borough President Cyrus C. Miller adopted it for the borough’s new flag. The flag, designed by August W. Schlemmer, contained much of the imagery of the Bronck family crest. The shield contains a sun, representing liberty, rising over the sea, representing commerce. An eagle on a hemisphere tops the shield, with it facing east, wings outstretched. This represents looking back towards the Old World, with one foot in the New World. The scene is surrounded by a laurel wreath, symbolizing triumph and victory. The background has three stripes, but they are oriented horizontally (the flag of #NewYorkCity and #Manhattan has the stripes oriented vertically). This flag is known as the Prinsenvlag, "Prince's flag," as it was used by William I, the Prince of Orange." IMAGE & HISTORY: @discovering_nyc

On our way to @thebronxnative‘s Pop Up Shop last night we made our first and only historical stop at Lincoln Ave. This avenue runs the length of #JonasBronck ’s farm of 1641. After that it was part of Colonel #LewisMorris ’ Long Neck farm of 313 acres, mapped in 1847. In #CivilWar  times it was known as #OldMorrisania , later #NorthNewYork . The avenue was surveyed in 1883 and opened in 1890 where it was a busy and well populated avenue due to its proximity to the railroads during docks. Justin was incorrect last night when he stated it was not named after the Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln (third pic on the left). It’s still unknown for certain whether it’s named after him or Brigadier General Benjamin Lincoln (third pic on the right) of the #RevolutionaryWar  who took part in some action in this very district. 👟👟👟 #bronxhistory  #didyouknow  #historyontherun  #learnedontherun  #seenontherun  #bronxsole  #itgoesdowninthebx  #bxs  #bronxfit  #not62  #runthruhistory  #bronx  #bx  #lovingthebronx  #learningthebx  #learningthebronx  #knowyourhood  #bronxlife  #howwebronx  #keepinitbronx  #keepinithealthy  #ahealthybronx
