Six battles. Five boroughs. One ultimate winner.

Our talent quest looked for the year’s best undiscovered performer in New York City. Hundreds entered each year, only 60 were chosen to take part. They competed in monthly Borough Battles live in The Greene Space, emceed by WQXR’s Terrance McKnight. Five borough winners were determined by audience vote and sent to the Ultimate Battle for the crown.


The Greene Space is funded by you.
