It was a crisp fall day on Saturday, Oct. 22, when the second Manhattanville Community Day of 2022 brought neighbors, business owners, scientists, artists, and Columbians together to celebrate the joy of community on Columbia's Manhattanville campus.

Attendees watched movies at Lenfest Center for the Arts, enjoyed free food samples from clients of the Columbia-Harlem Small Business Development Center, partook in art activities with Wallach Art Gallery, explored brain and community connections at Saturday Science, jammed to the music of DJ Stormin' Norman, attended a local restaurant food crawl, and connected with Columbia and neighborhood programs.

On a personal note, the Columbia Neighbors team appreciated meeting and talking with each and every one of you who stopped by our table in The Forum. Know you can always reach us at [email protected] if you have questions or story ideas!
