Description

This tour with folklorist Elena Martinez will explore the Hunts Point/Longwood neighborhoods in the Bronx where many Latin music performers lived and worked. Along the way, we’ll point out the dance clubs, theaters and social clubs where the music was performed and flourished. The tour will also examine the community organizations that have helped to improve the neighborhood and borough, and will highlight the street life and public art that continues to make the neighborhood vibrant. Meet at the Hunts Point subway stop on the #6 line. Go up to the sidewalk near the elevator. The tour will end at Casa Amadeo, the longest continually-run Latin music store in NYC.

Meeting Place: #6 train Hunts Point stop (near the elevator entrance at Raul Del Valle Plaza
