Famous Bronx Street Renamed Hip Hop Blvd

Yesterday’s ‘Global Hip Hop Day’ ended with a bang as the city officially unveiled 1520 Sedgwick Avenue as Hip Hop Boulevard. It’s been a long time coming and some of the biggest names and faces in the hip-hop world came out to pay homage to the block where it all began.
