50 Years

of Hiphop

Hip Hop culture was born on August 11, 1973 at 1520 Sedgwick Ave and Cedar Park

At an intersection in The Bronx, inner-city kids started a movement that would change the world.. The 1520 Community Center is not only an official Historical Landmark, but as far as the Hip Hop community is concerned, the 1520 Community Center space is also “sacred-ground”. The 1520 Community Center, located at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx (New York), has been long revered and known for decades as the official “Birthplace of Hip Hop”.
