Summer is most definitely upon us and I for one am looking forward to New York City's stinking hot August. But 'Uptown Bounce' kicks off this Wednesday, July 22, 2015! From 6-9 pm, El Museo del Barrio and Museum of the City of New York Present Uptown Bounce: Summer Nights @ 104th and Fifth.

The Hip Hop Revolution exhibition is still on at MCNY and should not be missed. Featuring the photographs of three photographers, Janette Beckman, Joe Conzo, and Martha Cooper, the exhibition is an immersive experience that includes personal ephemera such as polaroids signed by the musicians on set.
At the opening for Hip Hop Revolution I was shocked at the number of New Yorkers who confessed they had never been to the Museum of the City of New York before. Get it sorted, people!
