Exploring the South Bronx
May 7, 2017
Come and enjoy a free guided walking tour of Mott Haven – a 2017 Six to Celebrate award recipient. On this tour you will visit three Historic Districts – Mott Haven, Mott Haven East, and the Bertine Block. In addition to its historic value, in 1997 The Bronx was designated an “All American City” by the National Civic League, signifying a huge comeback from the terrible decline of the 70s and 80s. This anticipated revival has brought converted lofts, new affordable apartments and great restaurants, particularly on Bruckner Boulevard. This area has been heavily defined by an industrial nature in the past, but now is changing rapidly. Join Alexandra Maruri for this great opportunity to learn about the history and cultural movement of the Mott Haven and Port Morris area. This area is expanding with local new businesses and attractive new green spaces. The New York Times chose the South Bronx as one of the 52 places to visit in 2017.
