Free screening of Living Los Sures, the beautifully restored 1984 documentary about the lives of the Latino residents of the Southside of Williamsburg. Known as Los Sures, the neighborhood was one of the poorest in New York City in the late 70s and early 80s. In fact, it had been called the worst ghetto in America. Today, it is the site of a battle between local identity and luxury lifestyle.
Come early to see our latest art exhibit, Sylvia Hernàndez: Family and Friends in Quilts. Sylvia is a master quilter who has lived in South Williamsburg for decades. Her exhibit consists of portraits of people from the neighborhood. Sylvia also makes a brief appearance in the movie!
