The Center’s mission is to foster, promote and support the development of the arts, in its various disciplines, within the Puerto Rican – Latino Community. csvcenter.org I always wondered about this building on Rivington and Suffolk Streets.
It used to be covered in graffiti.
But with the exterior renovation recently complete, it looks amazingly clean and bright.
The iron work on the staircases and exterior gates is impressive. There is still much work to do on the interior of this 1897 building.
I came for an OHNY guided tour but there was no one at the front desk, or anywhere else I went in the building.

Gaudhi is involved in the Center’s outreach program. He’s a DJ, artist and furniture maker. I met him after my self guided tour.
