Do You Remember?

Bill Twomey Bill Twomey has been writing the history of the Bronx on the pages of the Bronx Times Reporter since August of 1983. He has had well over a thousand stories published in the paper over these past 28 years and a new story appears each week. As it has been almost thirty years since many of those columns appeared, you may have missed his earlier stories.

We hope you enjoy traveling around the Bronx with Bill. He'll take you to some out-of-the-way places, introduce you to some interesting people and hopefully edify and entertain you.

In addition to his newspaper columns, Bill is also the co-author of Throggs Neck 1983, a spiral-bound pictorial of that community and Throggs Neck Memories, a 269-page history published in 1994. Both books are now out of print. He has also given numerous lectures and walking tours on all areas of Bronx history. The latter has resulted in a new book on Tremont Avenue to be released by the Bronx County Historical Society at a later date.

He co-authored another book with John McNamara in 1998 entitled Throggs Neck-Pelham Bay which was released by Arcadia Publishing as part of their Images of America series. Bill's next book was released in October of 1999 and is entitled East Bronx. It, too, was published by Arcadia and it contains over 200 photographs of that section of our borough east of the Bronx River. It was followed by South Bronx in 2002. That book is still in print and it is priced at $19.99 and is available at Barnes and Noble and other fine bookstores, either in person or on-line. Both "Throggs Neck-Pelham Bay" and "East Bronx" have been reprinted by the publisher in May of 2011 but are not yet on bookshelves.  Both Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble, however, are carrying them on their websites.

Bill’s next book was "The Bronx, in bits and pieces." It is a collection of over 200 of his columns and will bring you hours of pleasure as you reminisce on the glories of another era. It was updated and expanded in July of 2007 and re-released by Rooftop Publishing. The publisher has since gone out of business but the book can still be found online at amazon.com. If you enjoy reading Bill’s stories on Bronx Mall, you will definitely enjoy having this magnificent tome on your bookshelf. It is being touted as one of the finest books on Bronx history in print and each story is presented in the inimitable Twomey style. Enjoy.

Bill's latest work " Images of America: Northwest Bronx" was released by Arcadia Publishing On May 5, 2011. He co-authored the 128-page pictorial work with Thomas X. Casey. Mr. Casey is known for having the largest collection of Bronx postcards in the world with over 5000 different images. This book covers the entire area west of the Bronx River and north of Fordham Road. Look for it at Barnes and Noble or wherever fine books are sold.

 

These pages are dedicated to those who are
building the "Bronx of Tomorrow."
