Bronx Point

The powerful connection between history, art, open space and high-quality communities is realized and celebrated in several high profile components of Bronx Point. Among the most exciting is the introduction of the first and only brick and mortar location of the Universal Hip Hop Museum (“UHHM”) that will anchor Parcel A in a nearly 60,000 square foot facility that will feature an interactive museum experience with immersive exhibits, live performances, film screenings, seminars, and demonstration labs. The UHHM educates the public about the history of Hip Hop culture, music, dance, and art. The mission of the museum is dedicated to the preservation, documentation, and celebration of the culture’s global history.

With a core formed from the vast collection of hip-hop legend and historian Claude “Paradise” Gray, it’s likely already the largest stockpile of hip-hop memorabilia in existence and is only growing as the museum’s 2022 opening date approaches.
