The not so discreet superhero storefront is actually just a front for an after school tutoring facility known as 826NCY.  Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?  Modeled after 826 Valencia, a nonprofit writing lab and tutoring center in San Francisco’s Mission District, 826NYC opened its doors in September 2004 and is dedicated to helping students, ages 6-18, develop their writing skills. They provide after school drop-in tutoring as well as evening and weekend workshops specializing in topics such as creative writing, student publications and college essays.
