Art, culture and just about everything else abounds in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country: New York City.
The five boroughs have welcomed inhabitants from all over the world since the city’s founding in the 1600’s, and the imprints of those immigrants are exactly what make New York City what it is today. The vibrant neighborhoods of Chinatown and Little Italy are great examples of New York’s cultural cross-section, but that’s not all. In Uptown, you can visit the historically African-American neighborhood of Harlem, and over in Queens you can experience the Greek history in Astoria, a neighborhood that today enjoys a highly multicultural population. For Polish food, head to Greenpoint in Brooklyn, or see the Russian influence in Brighton Beach, otherwise known as Little Odessa. In midtown Manhattan, you can stroll through Koreatown, and in Jackson Heights you’ll find Little India, where you can enjoy traditional curries and visit Bollywood music shops.
Arts and culture represent the always astonishing output of humankind’s ingenuity. Just as each person is unique, each US destination offers an experience that can’t be replicated elsewhere, defined by the fluid movement of the people who have made a home here over the years. Come see the many varied versions of the United States for yourself!
