The Bronx, one of the most negatively popular boroughs of New York is a place, which will both highlight negativity and positivity in its alleys. Bronx is as dark as the baroque paintings while again it is black and white and provides lighter shades of the fairy tales. A place, which can very easily be transformed into a film or novel script. Very few have been written on this place, though the famous Edgar Allan Poe lived the last few days of his life in his silent house off the Bronx highway.

The notorious Bronx

It was only in the novel Stoneheart: The Bronx by Kevin Thomas the real picture of Bronx came out. The book has been compared with Al Pacinos films on the underworld and gangsters. This place has always been highlighted for all the notorious underbelly activities prevailing in this region. The novel is extremely dramatic just like the real Bronx. Filled with adventure, misfortune, happiness it just reflects the true Bronx in all its pages.
