Company Halts ‘Ghetto’ Tours

A tour bus company in New York has announced that they will “cease all tours” to the Bronx after they inflamed residents by selling it as a “ghetto tour.” The company, “Real Bronx Tours,” catered to a European crowd, offering a $45 trip that included a visit to the South Bronx—where they assured customers they would remain a “safe distance” away from the people. The company told riders that the Bronx represents “one of the darkest chapters” of the city’s history. Angry Bronx residents say it's a false claim. “Those days are over, the Bronx is being rebuilt, it's rising again," said Bronx resident Bobby Sanabria.
