Project Information

A Better Bronx was created in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation and Majora Carter Group and highlights the importance of a sustainable environment to a waterfront community. Located at the entrance to Hunts Point Riverside Park, on the side of youth development organization Rocking the Boat, A Better Bronx encourages sustainable industry in an area that was once home to one of the most blighted waterways in the United States. The mural celebrates all that the community has achieved to gain access to and transform the Bronx River. The designs focal point is a series of vignettes showing Hunts Point residents enjoying a beautiful, green park on the waterfront. The mural also provides a platform to educate the community about the many transformative transportation initiatives planned for the area. A Better Bronx was completed as part of StreetWise: Hunts Point, a two-year campaign to engage community members in identifying and prioritizing transportation and related-environmental concerns in their South Bronx community.
