Several students of Yeshiva University’s Wurzweiler School of Social Work have offered photographs of the Washington Heights, NY area as part of the School’s participation in “Artstroll”. The photos of Washington Heights-Inwood by Yeshiva students reflect the diversity of our students and community.
According to the “Artstroll” website, for the past 11 years, local artists and leaders have partnered to build a stronger community through the arts in Northern Manhattan. The Uptown Arts Stroll is an annual showcase for this effort, giving a voice to an arts community that is growing in the often overlooked and quickly gentrifying neighborhoods of Washington Heights and Inwood. Since 2003, the Uptown Arts Stroll has grown from a one-day event to a month-long celebration offering a wide variety of arts and cultural events north of West 155th Street. The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA) in collaboration with local artists, businesses, community leaders and institutions, has produced the Uptown Arts Stroll since 2008.
