      The Bronx. It has a river running through it called The Bronx River due to a 17th century homestead started by a swede named Jonas Bronck across the harlem river from manhattan. At first, the entire area was known as The Annexed District of The Bronx, but as time went on people began to refer to it simply as "The Bronx" Its been that way ever since.
