Across 116th Street was an interdisciplinary artistic exploration of a single street in Manhattan that runs the full width of the borough, from the Hudson River to the East River, considering the past, present and future of 116th Street as well as the communities, narratives, neighborhoods and histories it intersects. Throughout the summer of 2013 I facilitated sidewalk family portrait workshops, conducted river-to-river walks and maintained a collectively-authored tumblr with images tagged #116th [http://across116thstreet.tumblr.com/]
