We have much to celebrate this year and hope that you will join us to raise a glass – our specially imprinted UNHP beer glass – to our many recent accomplishments. UNHP has aided in the improvement of tens of thousands of rental units in New York City through the use of the Building Indicator Project (BIP). With our partner, Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation, UNHP went to permanent closing on West Farms Square, a transformed 8 building, 526 unit affordable housing project. In addition to our housing work, UNHP has assisted over 4,000 Bronx residents through the Northwest Bronx Resource Center at Refuge House with a variety of financial education services, including a free tax preparation program which has helped keep over $7.5 million in Bronx pockets. We have also hosted events like our credit extravaganza, where 55 Bronx residents received help with their credit reports and 25 scheduled follow-up 1-on-1 appointments with a financial counselor.
About the Venue
The Bronx Beer Hall opened last year as both a business and as a way for the two young Bronx owners of Mainland Media, along with Chef David Greco, to share all the positive traditions, delicious food and their pride in the Bronx with a wider audience.
The Arthur Avenue Retail Market was created in 1940 as part of Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia’s plan to get pushcarts off NYC streets and had 117 stalls for vendors and merchants. Over a dozen merchants currently reside in the market including the Bronx Beer Hall, Peter’s Meat Market and Mike’s Deli, a two-generation family-owned business which sells the finest quality homemade antipasti, breads, meats, pasta, and imported cheeses. The Market, which is one of the few remaining indoor markets in the country, is visited by locals as well as people from throughout the tri-state area, and even from as far away as Europe, who come to buy products and experience an “old-world” ambiance. You can read more about the Bronx Beer Hall’s opening & success in a New York Times article, found here.
