Underwater New York is a digital journal of writing, art, and music inspired by the waterways that surround New York City and the objects submerged within them. By providing a prompt and platform for new creative work, and facilitating opportunities to engage with each other and the city itself, our mission is to help our audience envision the city in a new way, through the landscape of its sixth borough—its waterways.
We’re accepting submissions! Send us your investigative reporting, commentary, fiction, poetry, photo essays, short video, art installations, infographics, animation, music—or something else! We’re particularly interested in work that engages the historical, political, environmental, or ethical dimensions of our life on the waterfront.
