Today we celebrate two birthdays of ours – one is the 21st year of our domain name registration, and the other one is the 12th year of the creation of the first fully digital newspaper, covering the borough of Bronx, The Bronx Times.
The Bronx Times.™ was born on this day 12 years ago in 2005 as a full-fledged online newspaper upon completing the strategic acquisition of the Bronx.com domain name by former Wall Street financier Peter Milosheff. We have since developed our pages as a premium information and advertising outlet on everything related to the borough of Bronx, serving faithfully countless members of the community and its guests.
The Bronx Times.™ / Bronx.com grew and proved to be the most effective way of delivering real-time news to our readers, beating any printed (therefore inferior and irrelevant to real-time news) local newspaper in existence. On the business side, our media developed as the most direct and preferred bridge for advertisers to connect with the residents of Bronx, reaching an audience of more than 1,275,000 unique visitors in the last rolling 12 months, where each visitor viewed 5+ pages on average.
Consider this – Bronx.com is updated, up and running 24/7 and delivers information upon request, on location, instantaneously, a mouse-click away, beating any local printed edition in existence. Finally, when people think “Bronx“, they go to Bronx.com – in this day and age, we can say for certain that this is only “natural”.
Through innovation and unwavering dedication to the community, we have established ourselves as the largest public outlet recoding all that is significant in Bronx’s live history, hour-by-hour and day-by-day. We help curate and contribute to the ongoing civic conversations in New York City. Our coverage focuses on public policy, the arts, culture, living, technology, business and crime.
We call ourselves The Bronx Times.™ because our mission includes seeking full participation by you, our readers, to help focus our coverage and broaden our civic discussions. Comment on an article to get started, send us a tip, or write for us.
This year, 2017, we are also proud to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Bronx.com‘s birth back on March 7, 1996.
We cover Bronx in its entirety: Parkchester, Hunts Point, Fordham South, Grand Concourse, Forham North, Bronx North, Co-op City, Throggs Neck, Pelham Bay, Country Club, City Island, Westchester Square, Morris Park, Pelham Parkway and Castle Hill.
