The Bronx River

This week – we begin our new series: “RadioNature” by exploring people’s connection to nature and the outdoors. We begin in the Bronx… an urban borough bordered by the Bronx River. It’s the only freshwater river that runs through New York City. And for the majority of low-income Bronx residents, it’s one of their only connections to nature and a break from urban life. (Funding for this series comes from the REI Foundation.)

Radio piece and slide-show produced by Nusha Balyan.
Audio Engineer Matt Fidler.
