A peek into HopeNYC’s 2017 Christmas Parade!

You would hear the mechanical melody of drilling, pounding and jigsawing to the sounds of Christmas music if you took a walk inside HopeNYC. Hopers are prepping and constructing daily in the warehouse to build the most spectacular unthinkable parade floats! These floats will beautifully stroll down the streets of Rockaway blvd in lights and tell the true meaning of Christmas! You may also see familiar favorite characters and Christmas traditions.

Come be part of the celebration at HopeNYC’s 2017 Christmas Parade on Sunday December 3rd at 5pm! The route starts on 130th street Rockaway blvd and ends at HopeNYC with extra festivities! You have early notice so come get a good view and some great pictures!






The Hope Dancers!


It’s 7pm. The doors of Compass are closed! But wait! People are inside. How do I know? Did I see them? No! I heard them!

I heard a harmony of voices hover around as it echoed down the hall. I opened the door to a group of people gathered together about to start something….actually finish something.

It’s the HopeNYC Choir! They have been practicing in the cafe after hours for the past few nights. This is not an ordinary cafe. During the day it’s your go-to place for coffee and comfy seating but by night, it can be a birthday celebration, open mic night, young adult gathering, brainstorm for a project, ministry meeting, filming location and more!  I believe great things start here.

So what does the HopeNYC choir sound like?  Come and hear them.
