THE BRONX - New York City's tourism group is profiling two different Bronx areas this summer, hoping to attract more visitors to the borough.

This year's profiled areas are City Island and Pelham Bay Park. The group, NYC & Company, is promoting what makes both areas unique, like City Island's seafood and how Pelham Bay Park is the largest public park in New York City.

Last year, Arthur Avenue and the South Bronx were profiled.

The Bronx Tourism Council says the profile was one of the reasons why visitors to the Bronx tripled last year.
