Did you know? The Hub is the oldest major shopping locale in the Bronx.[5] Between 1900 and 1930, the number of Bronx residents increased from 201,000 to 1,265,000. Inhabitants throughout the borough shopped in department stores and boutiques at 149th Street and 3rd Avenue, an area that came to be known in this time as “the Hub”. In the 1930s the Hub had movie palaces and vaudeville theaters.[6] These included the Bronx Opera House, recently targeted for development as a boutique hotel, and the former Jackson Theatre. #thehub #hub #bronx #bx #history #heddek #fhmmg #youshouldbeshot #nofilter #new #history #knownfacts #facts #theatre
