Longfellow365 is a community photography project that started in 2014. The project documents each day with a photograph contributed by a volunteer local photographer. Each year a group of photographers are assigned a day of the week to take a photograph in one of the four neighborhoods that make up the Greater Longfellow Community: Cooper, Hiawatha, Howe, and Longfellow. Guest photographers also contribute photographs on substitute and rotating days.
