Michelle Young, founder of Untapped New York, recording a video for Insiders this morning on her couch
You’ve been telling us you want virtual content, and we heard you! Starting today, Untapped New York will be offering a wide breadth of virtual content to our Untapped New York Insiders.
These will include videos of our tours, a new, exciting podcast series, with some episodes produced in partnership with Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Facebook Live videos and Zoom talks with authors, artists, guides, and other people of interest, Virtual Town Halls via Zoom where you can have a chat with the Untapped New York Team, and more! Insiders will get this content exclusively for them (and in the case of the podcast, will get early access to the podcast).
Some of the lineup so far include a talk with artist Aaron Asis, who will share his site specific art projects in New York City and around the country; a tour of Flushing Town Hall with a violin performance by Sami Abu Shumay; an interview with the people behind Unforgotten Films; a talk with Jessica Ferri, the author of the new book Silent Cities New York, a talk with the Bika Ribek, the curator of FiDi Arsenale; and more! Live today already is a tour of the Wavertree ship at South Street Seaport with Jonathan Boulware, the President of the South Street Seaport Museum and an interview with our founder Michelle Young (both filmed by Urbanist). We already have a virtual tour of Grand Central available (additional discount for Insiders)
