In 2006, leading New York realtor Barbara Corcoran called the South Bronx "the last housing frontier close to New York City" and put it on her list of the top five places to buy in America.

While residents of many New York City neighborhoods have taken her advice, the majority of recent buyers have come from Manhattan. Between 2001 and 2006, well over 23,000 of them moved to the Bronx, making it by far the borough of choice for migrating Manhattanites.

Attracted by the elegant, spacious, and affordable apartment buildings, many newcomers have moved to the area of the South Bronx around the Grand Concourse, near the landmark Bronx County Courthouse and the Bronx Museum of the Arts.

This website shares the stories of these Bronx pioneers as they explore their new community. And it details the Manhattan and Brooklyn decor and style they have brought to their new homes.
