Urban Park Rangers specialize in the 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.

Join the Urban Park Rangers and learn about the history of this popular music genre that began as an underground urban movement.
