Urban Park Rangers specialize in interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and man-made, in our city's long history.
On August 11, 1973, hip hop was born in The Bronx at a recreational room party. The party was so popular and crowded, they had to move the party over to what is now known as Cedar Playground.
