    Default Walking in Mott Haven, The Bronx

    Ok today was a nice day and decided to go out and take lots of photos of this most talk about neighborhood in NYC. I walk alot and try to cover most of the neighborhood. So please enjoy my pics!


    Mott Haven, The Bronx:


    • Mott Haven is a neighborhood of Bronx.
    • The community was named for Jordan Mott, who built an iron works here in 1828.
    • Elevation is 36 feet.
    • Bounded by East 149th Street, Saint Mary's Park, the Harlem River and the East River.
    • Piano manufacturing was an important industry from the late 1800s to the 1940s

    Mott Haven was the first neighborhood to give rise to the term "South Bronx". In the 1940s when the Bronx was usually divided into the East Bronx and West Bronx, a group of social workers identified a pocket of poverty in Mott Haven and called it the South Bronx. This pocket of poverty greatly expanded northward, following the post-war phenomenon colloquially referred to as white flight, reaching a peak in the 1970s when the North Bronx-South Bronx boundary reached Fordham Road. Today the North Bronx-South Bronx distinction remains more common than the traditional East Bronx-West Bronx distinction, and some still regard Fordham Road as the boundary.

    Some parts are definitely more walkable than others: the OLD parts.

    I don't think we've seen a photo tour of that neighborhood at this forum yet. Well done!

    Ha, you did the footwork to deserve at least a partial answer: it's in the first five shots.

    Did you stop to eat anywhere?

    ^ I almost stop at one of the many McDonalds I kept seeing in the area.

    But instead I found a place on 149th Street. Can't remeber the name of the place but is in the southside of the street and it was full of people. I think it was either Puerto Rican or Dominican place but I wasn't sure. But anyway I had one meet potatoe and two empanadas. Not as healthy than McDonalds but a much better choice.
