{     Soundwalk: The Bronx, New York     }    

bronx.jpg Okay so I�ve been sleeping on this for awhile but I�ve recently had a chance to listen to this three-part audio tour that takes you through neighborhood hotspots that no tourist would likely stumble across. With this soundwalk you get a first-hand experience of the sights, sounds and personalities that have inhabited the streets. In section one you jump on the 4 Train to Yankee Stadium and get the dirt on baseball (with Tony Morante, Director of Stadium Tours at Yankee Stadium) and visit establishments once frequented by Bronx bombers and Hollywood celebs of the past. For part two you take the 5 Train to Hunts Point where you�re greeted by legendary graffiti artist BG183 (a founding member of TATS Cru). No rush, he will point you towards where to grab the best arroz con pollo and when you�ve finished up he will then walk you through the history of Bronx graffiti 101, pointing out murals (and expaining the stories behind them) along the way. In part three you�ll hop the 6 Train to join The Original Jazzy Jay in Bronx River where he will school you on the golden era of hip-hop in the Bronx. You will revisit classic D.J. battles of yesteryear and be treated to some vintage hip-hop along the way. Soundwalk: The Bronx, New York offers a unique insider�s view from locals who know these streets like they know the back of their hands. If you can't make it to New York City, this is the next best thing. - Written by Jay, read more of his reviews at Caffeine-Headache.net.

Wow, this sounds really good. I hope Jo from Facts of Life makes a cameo. Good job, Jay.
