I grew up in Manhattan and "Da Bronx," (yes, you're supposed to say it like 
that) and agree with Ruth's comments below. Some people even call it "The 
Boogie Down Bronx".  It is fun to hear about other's backgrounds.  I knew about 
Bobby Jax because we had some fun conversations but...Arturo?  They let him in?  
LOL. Must've been how "we got the flava up in here!"
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

I was born in the Bronx and we were told that since it was originally Jonas 
Bronck’s “home”, when you visited him you would say “We’re going to the Bronck
’s”  Ergo, The Bronx!  

Who knows, but it’s a good one!
