Six to Celebrate Tour: Hunts Point – June 29

June 29, 2019

11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Hunts Point in the South Bronx is home to thriving immigrant and minority communities that have infused the neighborhood with street art, music and delicious food. This tour focuses on the cultural heritage built by these communities, as well as on the architectural heritage built by the communities that preceded them. Some of the sites that will be explored in this tour include graffiti murals done by Tats Cru, an iconinc Bronx-based graffiti group; and  the Feldco Building, 1912,  a former center for popular music styles from jazz to hip-hop. The tour comes with recommendations on local restaurants, including City Tamale, a Mexican restaurant that serves, among other dishes, the rajas tamale filled with queso blanco and a mix of sautéed jalapeños, tomatoes and onions. City Tamale was featured by the New York Times earlier this year.  The tour will be led by Bronx resident and history enthusiast, Angel Hernandez.
