If you listen intently, with your ears to the ground, you will hear the winds of change blowing through Uptown. You can hear it in the restaurants, the bodegas and the barbershops, east of Broadway and west of Broadway alike. These winds are remixing, revitalizing and redefining the social, cultural, political, and economic landscape. This phenomenon has a name and that is the Uptown Renaissance (I like the sound of that) and we are the Uptown Collective. Our mission is to witness firsthand that resurgence, document it in real time and help to shape it. Hit us up at
