NEW YORK, NY – 1 Jun, 2017 – Announcing the hatching of A platform connecting families with activities taking place in NYC’s uptown neighborhoods, while promoting local businesses.

Uptown Birdies will be hosting a launch party on Saturday June 10, 2017, 2:30PM at the Rio ll Gallery. The gathering will be an opportunity to meet the creators of the website as well as other community members and families. There will fun and prizes, crafts and more – raffles and giveaways for kids classes and events.


Being a parent in New York City should be a piece of cake. It’s one of the most popular cities in the world, culturally diverse, excellent educational opportunities, resources to the max.

Of course the truth is usually a bit different than the fairytale. There are numerous family magazines and websites informing families on resources and classes that take place largely in mid and downtown Manhattan, leaving uptown parents to fend for themselves. Internet searches turn up little to nothing of the weekly events or classes in parts of Manhattan from Spanish Harlem to Inwood.

Michelle Caines and Shaneeka Wilson, both friends and parents, created a space to connect the families of “Upper Manhattan” with all the richness available. After spending years on neighborhood group sites, learning and sharing with other parents, it became apparent what was missing – a resource for families uptown. A platform to connect parents with the activities, events, and classes in our communities.

Uptown Birdies was hatched! The website is a service to children and parents Uptown, whether a lifelong resident or new transplant. In addition to providing information, UB aims to continue the dialogue on matters such as State Exam Opt-In/Out options, public school funding, Homeschooling opportunities and resources, and a lot more. As well as holding events that bring the community together.
