The Queen Cometh Uptown. Ready or not, here she comes… That’s right familia, Ms. Lauryn Hill will be live in concert on February 22, 2020 to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the venerable United Palace. I already have my tickets, so do yourself a favor and hit up our site to get your tickets ASAP.

Liann Herder wrote her first piece for the Uptown Collective on our desperate need for a viable community artistic space in Washington Heights and Inwood. Liann expounds on how that need has mobilized locals to push for more arts in the neighborhood and find creative ways to meet the pressing artistic needs of the community.
WATERLICHT, which translates to “Water Light,” is an immersive light installation and a centerpiece of Columbia University’s Year of Water interdisciplinary exploration. It includes art, lectures, symposia and research, uniting the campus and its constituents to examine and celebrate the planet’s most precious resource. Propelled by LED lights and lenses, WATERLICHT will come to life after sunset, at the public plaza of Columbia University’s Lenfest Center for the Arts from 7:30 p.m.-11 p.m. this week.
On this week’s episode, the LOL crew discusses Rachel’s recent HERlarious variety show, the opioid crisis and Jesus kicks. The special guest this week is the incomparable Carolina “Miss Rizos” Contreras.
