Food scene

This local favorite is a cool and original places that is making Hunts Point, the place to visit. Don't leave without getting a beer flight, ideally "Now Youse Can't Leave" // "No Resolutions" // "Well Earned" // and "Built For This" When you finish, grab a six pack to go of Bronx Summer with that fresh new can art of LA POMPA ~ reminiscing those good old days on the block. Take a trip to The Backyard to cool off like a cool cat in their shade structure or set up your tripod and craft a new profile pic -- (pun intended). Excellent brewery, I highly recommend a visit and look forward to my inevitable return.

The crust was perfect, the right amount of cheese, perfect sauce, amazing toppings, some of the best pizza I have had in many many years. And they deliver!

Sightseeing

This is great to know and a very important part of our United States History. If you Google it before visiting the site you will learn who Joseph Rodman Drake. You will discover it was also a historic slave burial ground. I am so thankful to have had a chance to visit this place. As with other elements of history that aren't told, this inconspicuous location gives me a moment to reflect on our US history. I hope more people visit or learn more about this location in the hopes that the City of New York Parks department will allocate money to continue to do research so we may one day know the names of the people buried here. I strongly recommend that you stop by and see this place. not just drive by, but get out and put your feet on this sacred ground. and honor the memory of the people buried here by telling someone else about it.
