For more than half a century, the South Bronx, and specifically Mott Haven, has been child of American urban decay.

Our neighborhoods continue to suffer from economic inequality and disenfranchisement; almost 40 percent of Mott Haven and Melrose residents live below the poverty line. It was over 50 years ago that the 1967 Kerner Commission acknowledged the severe racial and socioeconomic challenges in areas such as Mott Haven, yet today this divide is more pronounced than ever.
