Dominated by the presence of its key industry, Hunts Point houses one of the largest food distribution facilities on the planet. A small but dense residential area comprised of apartment buildings and row houses make up the landscape of this section of the Bronx. A melting pot of ethnicity, the neighborhood of Longwood has one of the highest concentrations of Puerto Ricans in New York City. This historic district hosts a collection of pre-war townhouses and high stooped multi-family units.
A renaissance is visibly transforming the area, with once-vacant lots experiencing redevelopment into two-family homes. Located just 6 miles northeast of midtown Manhattan, the rejuvenation of the neighborhood has attracted an influx of new businesses and residents eager for an excellent location or a short commute.
