it’s a wildlife

Yeah, that was Bronck’s River back in about 2011. 

A lot has changed since then. 

Park officials say they have removed 70 cars and about 30,000 tires. 

This is NEW YORK CITY’S only freshwater river.

It starts in Westchester County and runs for 23 miles until it flows through Soundview and into the sound.

The river is named after Swedish-born settler, Jonas Bronck,
 who farmed the western bank in 1639.

And the Bronx is named after the Bronck’s river.

In 2007, a beaver species driven out of New York waters 200 years ago was discovered with a 12 foot mud and twig lodge.

A variety of animals actually live in the Bronx.

Have a warm and fuzzy weekend.
