THE BRONX - Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he thinks The Bronx is the city's next big hot spot, and he wants it to become more like Brooklyn or Williamsburg.

Residents from the South Bronx say the mayor may be a bit late, as young professionals and artists have already started snapping up space to take advantage of the low rent and close proximity to Manhattan.

Locals say they hope more attention to their area will help the city bring in more parking spaces.
