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.

“From the standpoint of someone who’s lived through a lot of it, for the young folks, you have no idea how far we’ve come and how grateful you should be for where we’ve arrived. The impact of your fighting for the right, your demonstrating, they all mean something. There would not be this movement as it is if it were not for the stonewall riots that happened 51 years ago and all the marches since then… so keep it up!” --Tim (2020)
