Bronx Family Photographers
The Bronx was named after the Bronx River, which in turn was named after Jonas Bronck. In the early 1600’s, a Swedish settler named Jonas Bronck bought the land from the Native Americans who occupied the territory at the time. Whenever other land owners in the area wanted to travel to that area they would call it “The Bronck’s Land”, after his family name. At first he planned to use the land to grow tobacco crops, but it had a marshy terrain and hills, and therefore couldn’t grow anything on it.
