This is an attempt to index references to The Bronx in "The Archdiocese of New York: the Bicentennial History," a marvelous 624-page book written by Thomas J. Shelley. The 2007 book may still be available at the St. Patrick Cathedral gift shop or on Amazon. Use the alphabetic list of labels to the right or the search box at top left. The blog format places new posts at the top, but I also edit old posts with new photos from my travels around The Bronx.

See page 292 for an excellent summary of the stages of annexation of The Bronx (1874, 1895), the formation of Greater New York (1898), and the establishment of Bronx County (1914).
