Support

Thanks to a generous gift from the Greenwood Family, the Poetry Center is named in honor of Bella Unterberg, one of 92nd Street Y’s founders. Thanks to a generous gift from the Amber Walker Estate in memory of Christopher Lightfoot Walker, the Poetry Center’s Schools Project has been renamed the 92Y Christopher Lightfoot Walker Literature Project.

The Unterberg Poetry Center receives public funds from the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development and the New York City Council; the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art; the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
