Wow! I am a current resident and i love it here! There are many good things around here, such as kids running around robbing the elderly or the acid rain burning ur skin on the daily. But its aii bruh, oh i forgot to mention, but sometimes the marine corps come here once in a while to keep all the boys in check, REAL GOOD. For some reason, some of the guys come out limping and with some deadly infection, but its all for the better of everyone. Hope u and ur family move in, it is truly a good neighborhood.

Have you ever felt like nowhere in the Bronx is safe? Look no further because no area is safe. But let's think logically here now. Hunts Point is the most dangerous neighborhood in all of mankind. There's dealers, acid rain, trannies, etc. If you move here, you'll be safe because nobody wants to live here. Why live in a safe neighborhood where everyone wants to live... when you can have a beautiful, FREE home in an abandoned building? Plus there's plenty of good people here at Hunts Point. Haven't you heard of Diego, the Hunts Point Genius? or Calvin, the Whisper of Prophecies? There's free food in the lake full of trash. There's plenty of people who are willing to be friends. If you need any help, meet me at 2 am in front of the park in the white van with tinted windows. We can talk about business. "Hunt's Point, the land of the free and the home of the de-ad."
Just moved here and it's a super friendly neighborhood with mom and pop businesses fueling the neighborhood.
