Fellow Uptown Collective member, M. Tony Peralta, unveils his latest collection of tees entitled Uptown LocalUptown Local is a stirring artistic and sartorial homage to the Washington Heights/Inwood area.  This collection directly but playfully tackles the forces that have shaped and continue to shape this vibrant community; from the original bamboozling of the Lenape Indians by the Dutch to the creeping gentrification that is changing the cultural landscape of our barrio today.  More than just a collection of t-shirts, Uptown Local is a history lesson, a rallying cry and a much needed booster shot of neighborhood pride with a dash of Uptown style thrown in for good measure.  Uptown Local will be sold exclusively online and at the following fine local retailers; Probus (714 West 181st) and Nostylgia (251 Dyckman St).  This collection will be only available in limited quantities – so get yours before they are gone.
