Southern Boulevard is a street in the Bronx, New York City. It stretches from Bruckner Boulevard in Mott Haven to Mosholu Parkway in Bedford Park. Until 2011, the portion north of Fordham Road, adjacent to the New York Botanical Garden, was also named Dr. Theodore L. Kazimiroff Boulevard. The name of Kazimiroff, a Bronx historian, was taken off the street signs of Southern Boulevard because the New York City Department of Transportation believed that Kazimiroff's name was unpopular with locals, citing the fact that many people did not know where Kazimiroff Boulevard was.
