Uptown Happenings Together (NYC), rounds out the triptych of Uptown NYC Meetup groups, bringing together a gathering of Uptowners who are into checking out art and culture together in Harlem and other Uptown enclaves, for community, connection and conversation, while going around and seeing good stuff in the neighborhood together.

From Jazz at the Triple Nickel, and keeping up with what's going on at the Schomberg Center, to checking out whatever they're showing at Maysles and the Thalia... we'll step into creaking old galleries in garden levels of brownstones - which I swear tell stories with that creaking alone, if you listen closely enough- and raw spaces with installations which require some of us to strain our brains a bit extra to tap into their avant garde messages; venture to quirky bookshops, and cultural centers tucked away here and there, offering what sometimes seems like a hodge podge of open-mic odysseys, hip-hop inspired psychedelia, meditation of any spiritual tradition you can think of, 'raw' soul food, all and sundry other kinds of poetry, prose and social commentary in the footsteps of any number of greats but reinterpreted for 2010; and try to connect with the many other patches of emerging cultural expression springing up all the time all around us, which are so easy to miss in the bustle of city living.

Uptown Happenings Together (NYC) is about staying in the neighborhood a little more, slowing down and engaging a little more. Trying to connect with a few new people who may be into some of the same things; and getting a little closer to the pulse of all that good energy we sometimes lose touch with, while going to and fro' and up and down at a dizzying pace just trying to live in this wonderful but often frenetic and decidedly hulking city..
