Season 2, Ep.7 : Helen Georgas and Nicole Miller, Underwater NY

The CB Radio team is joined by Helen Georgas and Nicole Miller to discuss their project Underwater New York; 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, their mission is to help their audience envision the city in a new way, through the landscape of its sixth borough—its waterways.


Underwater New York has been featured in the New York Times, Atlas Obscura, New York Magazine, Time Out New York, Live Science, WFUV, and elsewhere.
Through our digital journal and our programmatic events, we seek to foster community, collaboration, creativity and diversity. Underwater New York is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC). It is a fiscally sponsored project of the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
