The Bronx is New York City’s northernmost borough, coterminous with Bronx County. The Bronx is located Northeast of Manhattan. It is the only one of the city’s five boroughs situated primarily on the United States mainland rather than on an island. As of 2006, the United States Census Bureau estimated that the borough’s population was 1,361,473.
If all five boroughs were independent cities, the Bronx would rank as the ninth most populous city in the United States. Recently, its population, which had been in decline since the 1960 census, has increased. The borough had its peak population in 1950. The Bronx is the fourth most populous of New York City’s five boroughs, and Bronx County is the fifth most populous county in the New York Metropolitan Area.
