From the Sedgwick & Cedar Web site:
"It began from humble beginnings. Cindy Campbell decided to throw a back to school party in the small Rec Room at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx on August 11, 1973. Her big brother, DJ Kool Herc, extended the break beats and mesmerized the jam packed crowd. That first Hip Hop house party would change the world forever."
