Brief HistoryThe Bronx was originally separated into two parts by the Native Americans. It was split by the Aquahung River. When Bronck discovered it for Europe in 1639, it got taken over by the Europeans and given the name "The Bronx". Different groups of people began to settle in the Bronx as the years continued. On January 1, 1898, New York City became officially consolidated and the Bronx became an offical borough. For the beginning of the 20th Century, the Bronx served as a location for manufacturing companies (including 63 piano-making factories that gave work to over 5,000 people). The Bronx then became a poverty striken area with many upperclass families moving out and more projects being built. Now a days, the Bronx is working to turn itself around and develop positive neighborhoods for people to move in to or grow up in._
