“Ghost Walk” with Hossannah Asuncion

Prismatic Park Writing Workshops

Jul 6, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

“Thousands of people pass that storefront every day, each one haunting the streets of his or her own New York, not one of them seeing the same thing.”
—Colson Whitehead, “City Limits”

What would you say to your ghosts? The ones that are deeper than nostalgia? The ones leaning against a New York that no longer exists; the way you are different than yesterday.

Ghost Walk explores, through text and image, the moments we recall and refeel stepping through this city’s transient memory.

The event is free and open to the public, however, advanced registration is strongly suggested. Please sign up here:
