THE BRONX - A Bronx woman has made it her duty to share the history of the borough through photography.

Lacy Schutz, who works at the Museum of the City of New York, posts historic photos of what the Bronx used to look like on Twitter.

Schutz says she's particularly interested in the border of Manhattan and the Bronx. She says many people don't know the background of their neighborhood.

"I became very fascinated with this neighborhood because it's unique -- in that it was administratively and politically part of Manhattan, but it's spiritually and geographically part of the Bronx," Schutz says.
