Bronx “Ghetto” Bus Tour Under Fire From Borough President

Bronx “Ghetto” Bus Tour Under Fire From Borough President

A bus tour operated three times per week promises to take tourists “through a real New York City GHETTO,” all the while doling out misinformation to mostly Australians and Europeans.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz slammed the “The Real Bronx Tour.”

“To have foreigners come and gawk at a long line of people who are less fortunate than they are and to make money off of that and to view them as they are some sort of entertainment is pretty disgusting,” Diaz said.

The description for the 3-hour tour says, “When we think about the Bronx we see images of the 80s and 80s [sic] when this borough was notorious for drugs, gangs, crime and murders.”
