Universal Hip-Hop Museum Is Finally Getting a Home in The Bronx.
Universal Hip-Hop Museum is the official museum of Hip-Hop, dedicated to the preservation, education and celebration of Hip-Hop culture’s rich history.
The museum’s executive director, Rocky Bucano, recently shared an update, confirming the news that the project not only has found a home, but one as fitting as where hip-hop originated in the first place.
Bucano said that Bronx Point, which also includes a multiplex theater, an education space, and a neighborhood food and beverage hall and incubator, hit on “the right mix of different uses.”
The plan, phase one of which is expected to be completed by 2022, will also incorporate 1,045 units of affordable housing at the site, located adjacent to Mill Pond Park and the 145th Street Bridge that connects to Upper Manhattan.
