Hunts Point Apartments

Hunts Point is a Bronx neighborhood located at the southeastern corner of the borough. This peninsula is created by the Long Island Sound lying at the neighborhood's southern coast, and the Bronx River mouth at the east and north.


Living in Hunts Point

Hunts Point is an intensely industrial/commercial area, with several auto-shop garages. The northern end of the community is where most of the residential structures exist, mainly consisting of low-rise apartment buildings. A few blocks near the northern end of town has rows of townhouses and roundstones.


Hunts Point is very inaccessible to public transportation, with only two subway stations to choose from, both located west of the Bruckner Expressway (the neighborhood's north- and western boundary).


Residents of Hunts Point apartments have access (although not easy access) to Barretto Point Park, located at the southern coast of the community. This well-coveted neighborhood park has plenty of recreational facilities, including a summertime, floating outdoor pool located on a barge.


This Bronx neighborhood is home to one of the world's largest food distribution centers, which includes the New York City Terminal Market, the Hunts Point Cooperative Market, and the New Fulton Fish Market. These facilities are accessible via the Bx6 local bus, which makes the loop around the food centers, then exists the neighborhood along the eastern side, and through Hunts Point Avenue.
