BVHP History

The Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood’s history is one of its most valuable resources, and one of its most precarious.  The neighborhood is subject to sweeping change via urban planning and socio-economic trends.  Population density is spiking as racial, cultural, class and other demographics shift.  The Bayview of tomorrow is sure to be different, but can retain its scrappy charm and commitment to social justice if we remember where we came from.
