9 Ways To Get To Know The Bronx According to CNN

In anticipation for this Sunday’s premier of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown Bronx episode, CNN’s Kat Kinsman — managing editor of the channel’s Eatocracy and writer and editor for CNN Living — has written a piece on 9 ways to get to know The Bronx.

And that’s a friggin’ shame.
