Hip-Hop Blvd Now Exists in the Bronx

IANCARLI, ALFRED/FREELANCE, NYDN

Hip Hop Pioneer DJ Kool Herc stands in front of 1520 Sedgwick Ave. in the Bronx, a building known as 'The Birthplace of Hip Hop.'

The “Boogie Down Bronx” now has a “Hip Hop Boulevard.”

Mayor de Blasio on Thursday signed a bill into law that renames dozens of streets in all five boroughs, including the swath of Sedgewick Avenue in the Bronx where hip hop was born.

With the stroke of a pen, de Blasio christened the block “Hip Hop Boulevard” in honor of the Aug. 11, 1973, party where DJ Kool Herc invented hip hop at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue.

“If you have friends on the west coast, remember to tell them it all started here, okay?” de Blasio said before signing the bill.
