Hunts Point

There are prostitutes and pimps, drug dealers and addicts and nearly all of them wish they could get out of Hunts Point - an impoverished, desperate neighborhood in the Bronx called New York City's red-light district.

All of them want to get out or are trying to get out and find a better life, away from the drugs, violence and sex. But most cannot.

Prostitution is Hunts Point's perennial problem. Even as the neighborhood has attracted an art scene and sprouted housing developments, the truckers who come through to the terminal markets and the isolated industrial streets continue to create an atmosphere that lends itself to prostitution. Much of the activity has moved inside, using apartments.
