How the Bronx has changed! And what better way to see it up close and personal than with this installment of the New York series. Denizens and celebrities of the famed borough walk you by and around major landmarks, bistros, hot spots, and funky neighborhoods with warmth and camaraderie, ever vigilant for the trouble spots and the police. In Part 1, take the 4 Train to Yankee Stadium for baseball lore and more; in Part 2, take the 5 Train to Hunts Point for graffiti elitists and hip-hop pioneers; in Part 3, take the 6 Train to the Bronx River, where the Original Jazzy Jay (a hip-hop master and co-founder of Def Jam records) spills the wild, exuberant history of one of the world's most popular musical styles. A memorable walking tour, as well as an entertaining listen with great sound. D.J.B. 2004 Audie Award Winner (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
