A Special Announcement

We started working on this project last year as a way to support local businesses and show off a local side of New York, which, no surprise, is what we do at Culture Trip. Then, the pandemic hit and the city shut down.  However, now things are starting to turn around in New York, we felt it was the right time to celebrate this amazing city. The destinations we are going to talk about here are in various stages of reopening, as is all of NYC. We hope this will encourage you to check them out and support them, either now, or by adding them to your bucket list for the future for when you feel like you too can travel safely, as well as explore all the incredible boroughs of New York.  Have fun listening and have fun traveling, whenever and wherever that may be.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
