East Harlem Feasibility Study

Union Settlement proposes to conduct an inventory and an assessment of underutilized theaters and cultural institutions in East Harlem and evaluate their physical condition, assessing their potential for renovation, robust programming and revenue generation. Its objectives are to: 1) understand the benefits a theater district and cultural corridor would have on both the local community and the broader arts and culture scene in New York; 2) engage community members and stakeholders in partnerships within the theater and cultural community; 3) assess the efforts, advocacy, and costs involved in revitalizing underutilized theaters and cultural institutions in East Harlem; and 4) develop a strategic plan for the process of transforming these underutilized theaters and other arts centers into thriving cultural institutions and generating economic opportunities for the East Harlem Community.
