The ways in which we interact with personal and communal spaces has been transformed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this Town Hall artists, activists, entrepreneurs, and community leaders come together to share and discuss their perspectives on what is needed from community spaces in Harlem in this moment and beyond.
