New Hip-Hop Museum Coming to the Bronx

New Hip-Hop Museum Coming to the Bronx


The birthplace of hip-hop has just become the home for the new Universal Hip-Hop Museum. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

According to reports, the new project, which has been coined Bronx Point, was recently approved by the Community Board that represents the borough. The new waterfront development will feature 600 new affordable housing units, an outdoor performance space, a multiplex theater and the new hip-hop museum, which has been in the works for nearly four years.

Hip-hop greats such as Ice-T, LL Cool J and Kurtis Blow have already signed on to assist in the process, with Blow heading as the organization’s chairman. The museum plans to connect with tech giants to create an innovative tech and entertainment experience for hip-hop fans and the culture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“The Universal Hip-Hop Museum may be the single most important project for the preservation of hip-hop culture. This new cultural institution will be great new tourism destination for NYC and the Bronx. What a great day for Hip-Hop,” Blow said of the project, which is expected to complete its first steps by 2022.
