Have you checked all of Ancestry's city directories for New York City (which apparently include the Bronx, as it is not listed separately)? Remember if you're searching as far back as 1870 you will want to check city directories, not phone books (Bell did not invent the phone until 1876, and many did not have phones even as late as the 1940s).

did you find one? I am looking for a 1955 bronx directory.
I see the new york public library system owns them, but I am far away from there.

I don't know if you are near New York, but the library keeps microfische of 1929-1973 Bronx and other phone directories. It's possible you could call and see do they circulate copies of the roll of microfische. There was somewhere i found 1945 on line, but I cannot find it again. If I come across it I will update this message. It might have been Cyndislist, if you keep plugging away at it:
