Throggs Neck Section of the Bronx

Throggs Neck Section of the Bronx

Throggs Neck (also known as Throgs Neck) is a narrow spit of land in the southeastern portion of the Bronx in New York City. Found between the East River and the Long Island Sound. "Throggs Neck" is also the name of the neighborhood of the peninsula, bounded on the North by East Tremont Ave. and Baisley Ave. on the west by Westchester Creek and the other sides by the River and the Sound. 

Throgs Neck Park is a small public park that faces Throggs Neck from the opposite shore at the end of Myers Street. It is a popular summer resort which contains a large German beer garden.

The neighborhood attracts largely working and middle class people, many who work for the city including firefighters and police officers who like the relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Water is very much within reach — on three sides of the neighborhood. Although the beach-club atmosphere of the summer months dissipates each fall when the summer-only residents depart, brokers say the sea remains a strong pull for many buyers.

The two square miles of Throgs Neck are home to about 30,000 people, according to census data. The area has traditionally been an enclave for Italian-, Irish- and German-Americans, and that still is the case. But these days there are substantial numbers of African- and Asian-Americans, as well as Hispanic-Americans from a variety of countries, distributed throughout.
