Nuevayorkinos’ collaboration with the 2023 River To River Festival features a photography exhibition that amplifies stories of Caribbean and Latin American (im)migration to New York City. All photos were taken before 2005 across the five boroughs, and each story was written by the family depicted in each photograph.

Presented in Partnership with The Howard Hughes Corporation at the Seaport

Nuevayorkinos is a digital archive and multimedia project documenting and preserving Ñew York City Latino and Caribbean culture and history through family photographs, videos, and stories. Established in February 2019, Nuevayorkinos accepts submissions from Latino and Caribbean New Yorkers, taken in the five boroughs before 2010. For historically marginalized communities, storytelling for the people by the people is both an act of decolonization and a way to combat gentrification. By showcasing a range of stories from El Barrio to Jackson Heights, Nuevayorkinos seeks to celebrate the collective beauty, love, and resiliency of immigrant New York.
