Acropolis! The Siege and Defense of Home in Morningside Heights

Acropolis!  The Siege and Defense of Home in Morningside Heights – Saturday, March 23, 12-3pm (rain date March 24), meet at W111th Street & Riverside Drive
A coalition of Morningside Heights community and student groups is planning an interactive walking tour of the neighborhood.  The event will feature oral histories, role players, live music, and visual art to make this an engaging discussion on local housing history, the roles of locally based institutions, and what can be done to preserve our neighborhood’s stability and diversity.
Acropolis! will be based loosely on the Greek tragedy theatrical genre, but its final form will be determined by neighbors who actively shape it during January, February, and March.
Event organizers: W111th Street Block Association, Morningside Heights Community Coalition, A. Philip Randolph Square Neighborhood Alliance, Columbia Policy Institute (others being added).
