Mott Haven's new hip-hop restaurant, Beatstro, a 'callback' to the '70s

on 05/24/2018 - 03:58 pm

Mott Haven’s roots are on display in the midst of a neighborhood rebranding with the opening of Beatstro, a dining and entertainment venue that boasts Bronx pride with graffiti art, soul food and hip-hop-influenced decor. “We don’t want people to feel like we came in and changed things; we want to keep it as familiar as possible,” says Bronx native Alfredo Angueira. “We’re very sensitive to what’s going on in the Bronx.” Walking the blocks that surround the restaurant, still under construction, Angueira points to shuttered storefronts that’ll soon be reborn as art galleries and coffee shops. Beatstro, co-owned by Angueira and Julio Martinez, joins the growing list of businesses hoping to thrive on Alexander Avenue as the South Bronx gentrifies. “We wanted to tone it down a little bit,” he says, referencing the 2,250-square-foot restaurant’s intricate interior design. “What we didn’t want was for it to feel too upscale, too elegant, and alienate the community. We want the people who are working here and who live in the projects to feel comfortable.” Bronx's new hip-hop restaurant, Beatstro, a 'callback' to the '70s

Young girl holds lemonade stand for boy battling cancer in the Bronx. the story about a young girl's compassion for a complete stranger in the Bronx. Sunday, August 06, 2017 08:31PM. THROGS NECK, Bronx --. Sometimes a lemonade stand is about much more than the birth of an entrepreneur."He was diagnosed on May 1st with neuroblastoma, and he's undergoing treatment now - five cycles of chemotherapy," said Jaiden's Mom, Crystal Torres. "I've been doing a lot of fun stuff," Jaidan adds. Jaidan's smile hasn't dimmed, in part because of the lemonade stand. "How me and my mom made it was we started squeezing lemon for lemon juice and then we put it in a jar, and then we had water, boiled it, and then we put sugar, mixed it up, put it in that and then we put ice and that's it!" Kaitlyn Barrios said. Kaitlyn, meanwhile wanted to do a lemonade stand for some time - the question, though is why? She wanted to donate the money to Jaidan's Courageous Cancer Journey. The pair met because Kaitlyn's mother is a family friend. There isn't a lot a dollar can buy these days, but when you think about what the money is worth, it means a lot. "The most important thing is keeping his spirits high," says Jaidan's mom. So how much did they raise? "Like a lot. I can't count!" Kaitlyn says. "It's free for Stephanie and everyone. Except the adults. The adults have to pay. The adults have to pay because they have money." Yes, these little kids were selling lemonade, but they're also selling something else - giving grown adults a lesson in selflessness. cancer in the Bronx - WTVD-TV

A 50,000-sq.-ft. former Rite Aid store in what was not long ago a rough-and-tumble area of the South Bronx has sold for $17.5 million.
The buyer, an affiliate of ABCAPSTONE plans to redevelop the building — now occupied by a Salvation Army Family Store — into as much as 100,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
The location between the Mott Haven and Melrose neighborhoods of the Bronx is known as “The Hub,” and hosts a melange of retail options including Aldi, Boston Market, Blink Fitness, CVS, Forman Mills, Marshalls, Modell’s, and Nine West.
RKF, which brokered the deal, estimates the daytime population of the area to exceed 570,000.
“The city of New York has worked relentlessly to make The Hub more pedestrian and bike-friendly. As a result, this retail corridor is particularly compelling for retailers wanting to serve the neighborhood’s growing population,” said RKF’s Zach Mishaan.
