Update! Our website is now fully searchable!
CultureNOW is pleased to announce the revision and expansion of our
website, www.cultureNOW.org, as an online companion to the fifth
edition of DowntownNOW.
DowntownNOW, a full scale map of downtown Manhattan's vibrant cultural
scene, includes images and information ranging from public art and
architecture to museums and galleries to performing arts spaces and
theaters. This fall cultureNOW produced its fifth edition of the map
since 2002, and expanded coverage all the way to Houston Street. All
of this information is now available online, so please - take a tour
of downtown on us!
For more information, or to obtain the fifth edition of DowntownNOW,
please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mission of cultureNOW is to promote civic awareness of and
interest in our culturally rich environment of New York City. The free
downtownNOW Map grew out of the work of New York/New Visions (NYNV)
Design Coalition for the Rebuilding of Lower Manhattan, a volunteer
effort by professional design organizations in response to the tragic
events of September 11th. The map was an effort to demonstrate the
rich cultural resources of downtown that had remained after 9/11. It
was first printed in January, 2002 with subsequent updated editions in
June, 2002, September, 2002, September, 2003, and now our fifth
edition, finished in October, 2006. These maps together have provided
cultural snapshots of downtown as it recovers.
CultureNOW is a non-profit organization.
