Come May, a familiar face will be missing uptown.

Emmanuel Abreu, better known as DJ Boy, has been an omnipresent creative force in Northern Manhattan for years. If you missed him volunteering at Word Up Community Bookstore, collaborating and performing with the People’s Theatre Project, it has still been virtually impossible to overlook his work.
