All About Bronx

The Bronx is a New York City borough full of local culture and flavor. Home of the creation of hip-hop and the New York Yankees, the Bronx is the ultimate, authentic New York experience. The Bronx is a melting pot of cultures, people, food, and entertainment. The borough was originally settled by Europeans and later populations from the Caribbean, which has resulted in the Bronx being a true melting pot of cultures and cuisines. 

Most tourists never make it to The Bronx when visiting NYC, which is why the borough has a more authentic feel than more tourist friendly areas of the city like Manhattan. NYC’s hidden gem is full of cultural history and attractions like the Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Bronx Zoo, and the famous NYC Botanical Garden

Pop culture has long portrayed the borough as a symbol of crime and urban ruin. However, in recent years, the borough has gone through a cultural and social revival. In the Bronx, you’ll find the iconic New York landmark Yankee Stadium. There, you learn about the history of the 27-time World Series Champion New York Yankees. 

Another major attraction you can visit in the Bronx is Poe Cottage. Famous American horror author Edgar Allan Poe spent the last years of his life in this cottage located in the Bronx. Poe wrote one of his most famous works, Annabel Lee, at the cottage. Now, Poe cottage is maintained by The Bronx County Historical Society and is open for tours on specific dates. 

The Bronx is also home to the “real” Little Italy. Unlike the tourist trap Little Italy in Manhattan full of commercialized pizza joints, the Bronx is home to what locals call “the real Little Italy”. Located on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx in the Belmont neighborhood, this section of the borough is home to the best Italian fare in NYC. Generations have called this neighborhood home, and the home style and family atmosphere still remains. From an Italian bazaar to the best pasta in the city, Arthur Avenue is the place to find the best Italian food in the city. 

After enjoying all the Bronx has to offer, head over to Manhattan and visit SleePare. While you might not be able to walk off the pasta, you will for sure find your perfect Live in the Bronx and need a new mattress? It’s worth it to head over to SleePare in Manhattan to find the perfect mattress so you can get the best sleep ever!

Our Manhattan showroom, located in Chelsea, is where online and brick and mortar stores meet for a shopping experience like you’ve never had before. You might not think New York City is the place to buy a mattress, but SleePare is out to change that. 

SleePare is not your average mattress store. We take mattress shopping to a whole new level. Unlike other mattress stores that only carry a specific brand, SleePare showcases mattress brands usually only found online. 

With the growing popularity of online mattress companies and the bed-in-a-box concept, more shoppers are surfing the web to find their next mattress, instead of visiting their local chain mattress or furniture store. Before making a big purchase like a mattress, shoppers want to test out the product for themselves and know the product before making a commitment to a specific brand. 

That’s where SleePare comes in. SleePare combines the best of both worlds; online and in-store shopping. We have exclusive deals with select online retailers for special coupons for their products. That way, our shoppers can get the best deal on the best mattress.

Stop by SleePare for a 30 minute nap to take a mattress for a “test run”, and wake up to a fresh cup of coffee.
