Word Up

Washington Heights
This volunteer-run shop was supposed to be temporary, a pop-up that would occupy a vacant Washington Heights storefront for a month. But a bookstore-starved neighborhood clamored for more, and with help from the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, one month became more than a year. Thanks to an outpouring of community support and a successful Indiegogo campaign, the shop found a permanent roost in the summer of 2013. A reflection of its nabe, Word Up carries a multilingual book selection and hosts a diverse array of locally fueled events.
