Port Morris

Port Morris, otherwise known as SoBro, is anchored to be the next Red Hook, luring new residents with its luscious waterfront views and its ease of connectivity to Manhattan and the outer boroughs.

Its located at the southernmost tip of The Bronx, where Harlem and the East Rivers separate it from Manhattan. The nabe is a vital thoroughfare, connected to four bridges along with the Major Deegan and Bruckner Expressways bordering it to the north.

Port Morris was established as a seaport in 1842, according to the Historic District Council, by Gouverneur Morris Jr., the son of United States founding father Gouverneur Morris. 

It houses roughly 2,000 residents, which though predominantly Puerto Rican now hosts an influx of ethnicities, from white Americans to Mexicans, are benefiting from this change.
