Spend just one day in the Big Apple and you’ll come away with at least one story. So imagine the tales the locals have to tell!

Marking the launch of the Five Boro Story Project, “I’m Tawkin’ Here: Storytelling with a New Yawk Accent” is a citywide celebration of all that is New York in story, music and film.

“I’m Tawkin’ Here” is traveling through the boroughs on five consecutive Wednesdays, from April 10th through May 8th, promoting the culture of each borough: the history, the stories, and the accents.

Although New Yorkers are known as straight shooters, “I’m Tawkin’ Here” offers a chance to wax poetic about our boroughs. The series brings New Yorkers together for five nights of great storytelling and film that prove our bridges and tunnels (and ferries) are more than mere methods of escape, but are in fact connectors of culture.
