Sedgwick & Cedar is proud to celebrate the pioneering spirit, creativity and the style where Hip Hop began in 1973 at the Sedgwick Avenue & Cedar Park intersection of The Bronx, NYC.

We are driven every day to represent the style of the original DJ’s, MC’s, B-boy Crews and Grafitti Artists that laid the foundation of Hip Hop at the first house parties, block parties and park jams. We come with “much respect” to honor those that paved the way for what has now emerged as the most popular cultural phenomenon of this century.

Birthplace

It began from humble beginnings. Cindy Campbell decided to throw a back to school party in the small Rec Room at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx on August 11, 1973. Her big brother, DJ Kool Herc, extended the break beats and mesmerized the jam packed crowd. That first Hip Hop house party would change the world forever.

DJ Kool Herc could not contain the party inside for long. He moved the party down the street to Cedar Park where Kool Herc hot wired a light pole for juice to power up his legendary Herculord speakers and rocked the borough. Sedgwick Avenue & Cedar Park is the authentic place “Where It All Began.”
