Betances Houses

Betances

The Ramon Betances Houses are a conglomeration of public housing in Mott Haven which includes high-rises, low-rises and even refurbished walk-up apartments. Near the community center on 146th Street is a memorial to their namesake, the 19th Century Puerto Rican nationalist and humanist. It includes a mural of Betances and stone marker describing his life, dedicated by an organization from his hometown of Cabo Rojo.
