This community-driven project is transforming the magnificent but abandoned P.S. 109 in East Harlem into a sustainable home for 90 artists and their families and for 13,000 square feet of space for community and cultural groups, spurring economic growth on the commercial corridor of Third Avenue. Coordinated by Artspace, P.S. 109 will promote the vision of El Barrio as a major Latino cultural capital.
