Astrid and Eileen: Hunts Point Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Astrid and Eileen were walking home with their parents, coming from a church party, when they stopped at the corner. Their father is from Guatemala, their mother from Honduras. The parents spoke little English but were very happy to have their two daughters’ picture taken. At the same corner three young prostitutes were actively looking for Johns.

The prostitution in Hunts Point is not confined to some dark corner, or some industrial region. It takes place on some of the busiest residential streets. The pimps and girls walk up and down the main streets, from sunset till sunrise. If you spend anytime in the neighborhood, or like Astrid and Eileen you live there, prostitutes, pimps, addicts, drug dealers and police are a constant presence.
