Hip Hop Landmarks, Pt. 1

You hear about the spaces and places of legend in rap songs often enough, but when do you ever get to see them? The hip-hop tourism industry exists, but let’s just suppose that you aren’t quite ready to ship off to the Bronx to take a guided bus tour. what to do then? Fortunately, we’re living in a Jetsons-like futuristic age of wonder, and Google Maps exists. I put together this lil’ slideshow of places in NYC that you might find interesting. This isn’t stellar photography but the screencaps show addresses so you can fire up your browser and do some virtual exploring of your own. In this album we have pics of Patterson, Forest, and Mott Haven Houses in the South Bronx for the DITC fans, plus the stomping grounds of Jay-Z, Nas, Wu-Tang, Tribe, Public Enemy and others. The embedded slide show will give you an idea of what to expect, but click on the link below for the full-screen, fully annotated journey.
