If you have two days to spare follow this "Bronx Medley."
Take a bus, subway, or taxi to the Bronx Zoo and enjoy one of the largest zoos in America. Afterwards visit the New York Botanical Garden and connect with horticulture. Head over to Wave Hill and relax on the grounds of the public gardens and cultural center. Craving pizza? Little Italy on Arthur Avenue is the answer. Giovanni makes delicious pizza that has been enjoyed by such famous folks as the New York governor and the late Mother Teresa.
Chances are that you've been so smitten by the old fashioned Italian neighborhood of "Little Italy" that you want to return. No worries there's plenty to do in the Belmont section of the Bronx known as Arthur Avenue's Little Italy. The Arthur Avenue Retail Market sells everything from hand rolled cigars to fresh pasta. Over at De Lillo's Pastry Shop you can fix your sugar cravings with marvelous desserts. (The cannoli's here are some of the best in all of New York City). Have a cup of cappuccino at Caffe Reggio "home to the original cappuccino." Spend a bit of time in the charming upper middle class neighborhood of Riverdale then head to City Island a 1.5 mile small island surrounded by water that feels like a piece of New England (think Maine or Rhode Island). Have a seafood meal at The Original Club Shanty before heading to Yankee Stadium to watch the New York Yankees play some serious baseball.
