What we're about

In 2020, me and my husband Mitch Borden founded Gotham Yardbird Sanctuary to remedy the dire situation for NYC's Jazz community and local businesses after Covid-19 devastated the city of dream.

GYS sponsors Live Jazz performances with social distancing till the vaccination ensures the safety of the public health.

Now, we are putting FREE in-person Live Jazz EVERY DAY with sought-after Jazz artists right from the vibrant Jazz community in the city.

For anybody with sketch book can join us to draw live local artist with various instruments, nationalities in relaxed artistic environment. Beautiful patio upstairs!

There is a private Facebook Group Gotham Jazz Atelier where you can watch past Live Jazz live-streaming and also some selected local artists will be featured in this group. So please come through and show your talent and unique approach!
