"Not My First Choice"

Ok, Hunt's Point gets a bad rap, but has improved a lot since the 1970s and 80s. You will now find the popular Barretto Point Park with the seasonal floating swimming pool, as well as The POINT and BAAD!, two arts-focused non-profits. The area is largely industrial, so even in broad daylight it's quite possible that you may be the only one in sight on certain streets. This is also home to the mammoth Hunt's Point Terminal Market. If you have bought produce, fish, or meats, it's likely this is the point of origin. The not-so-good? Since Giuliani, crime is down and the its reputation for prostitution is largely a thing of the past, but this is still one of the highest crime neighborhoods in the Bronx. Asthma, poverty, and addiction are all still a sad reality here.
  • Barretto Point Park
  • The POINT
  • Interesting industrial space
  • Street violence
  • Desolate streets

"Not a prime selection"

For New York City, this is a flat, relatively desolate looking neighborhood. The books would call it a low income neighborhood, and one walk around will let you know just how much there isn’t going on over there. The neighborhood itself is set slightly apart from the rest of the borough, at least geographically – it’s out on a peninsula, but the 2, 5, and 6 trains all hit the area, and the neighborhood is also serviced by a number of buses. This area has had plenty of problems with crime and poverty in the past, and it isn’t really recommended real estate. That being said, it’s obviously not recommended tourist faire either.
