1. Bronx CookSpace at Urban Horizons
From 1926 to 1976, the Morrisania Hospital served a mainly second-generation immigrant population. The building, like many parts of the Bronx during the 1970’s and 80’s, fell into disrepair and stood barren until 1997. WHEDco then bought the building and revived the location, transforming it into a community hub.
The Bronx CookSpace, located in the former hospital, is a fully-equipped commercial kitchen that provides entrepreneurs with an affordable space to test products and ideas. The 4,000-square foot kitchen is divided into four workspaces that can be rented alone or in combination, 24/7. Kitchen equipment includes dry, cold and frozen storage, Southbend stovetops, Duke convention ovens, Hobart dishwashing stations, Blodgen pizza ovens, and commercial knives and stand mixers.
