Over the last 40 years, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theater and visual arts. A multicultural and multi-arts institution, the Cafe champions the use of spoken word and music as means of social empowerment for minority and underprivileged artists. Our community of spectators, artists and students is a reflection of New York City’s diverse population. Allen Ginsberg called the Cafe “the most integrated place on the planet,” the Wall Street Journal says the Cafe is a “a thriving arts center with partnerships across the city,” and John Leguizamo says the Cafe “put the street on stage… Made our lives real, our emotions real.”
