Recently, a few of us at Empax took a trip up to Hunts Point. We were guided by Hunts Point Alliance for Children’s Maryann Hedaa and learned a lot about Hunts Point’s history, culture and current state. This eye opening and insightful tour provided us with a lot of intimate details and research for our rebranding and website project.

We can’t show you what we’ve done so far; you’ll just have to wait for the debut! For now, here are select photos from the tour:

The recently developed Baretto Point Park along the Bronx River. It houses the floating pool! Unfortunately, the park is surrounded by industrial buildings and a sewage plant.
