Word Up Answers Washington Heights Need for a Bookstore

Washington Heights’ Word Up is a volunteer-run bookstore, which began as a pop up shop hoping to answer the neighborhood’s need for books in 2011. As a pop up, Word Up was embraced and beloved by the community and eventually was able to move into a larger, more permanent space on Amsterdam Avenue. The bookstore accepts donations and sells a wide variety of English and Spanish language books. I’ve visited the space for a few events, including a recent trip to their new location to see a neighbor’s comedy variety show spotlighting local comedians and musicians.
