Besides The Bronx being the birth of Hip Hop 50 years ago...this specific station at 161st Yankee Stadium is the stop I would take from Harlem to meet my potential wife @khaliqart.boutique at Masjid Taqwa wa Jihad at 901 Anderson Ave near Jerome Ave ( its no longer there) ...The Masjid is where I also learned a lot of my Qur'anic studies from different teachers but most importantly my Marriage and Family life began here and it has elevated me to a status, I could never imagine.
