Stoop Stories™ is a documentary storytelling project designed to connect, support, and celebrate our NYC neighbors, especially those hardest hit by the pandemic and systemic inequities. We honor generations of New Yorkers, past and present, who rejoice and take refuge in stoop culture. Since April 2020, we have produced hundreds of features from families, essential workers, small business owners, activists, and artists throughout the five boroughs. What started as a solo pandemic project has evolved into a collective of visual storytellers who share their unique vision of community from their own neighborhoods, and yours.
