The Bronx is the second smallest borough by population (approx. 1.39 million) as well as the second smallest by size at 42 square miles. As the third most densely populated county in the entire country, it still has a number of open areas, including the Bronx Zoo and the New York Botanical Garden. The Bronx contains some middle and upper class neighborhoods; however, it also contains one of the five poorest Congressional Districts in the U.S.
In regards to ethnicity, the most recent census states that the Bronx is the only borough in New York City with a Hispanic majority (53.5%).
