Inwood Astronomy Project (NYC)

The Inwood Astronomy Project is a community outreach effort for Northern Manhattan and the Bronx in New York City. In celebration of The International Year of Astronomy in 2009 , The Project will lead 100 Nights of Astronomy in our local parks, libraries, schools and community centers. Our goal is to get 5000 people to look through a telescope. Our neighborhood is a great New York success story. It is ethnically and racially diverse, which gives our little neck of the woods a vibrant feel. We hope you come join us on one of our many Starry Nights Shows or take in one of our Astro101 Classes at the New York Public Library, Inwood Branch. The stars know no boundaries of race or ethnicity, so we are reaching out to all our neighbors to join us under the night sky.
