Meeting the French in New York
Did you know that as of December 2012, there were 18 055 French people living in New York1? And that’s only counting the ones registered at the French Consulate!
Surely we can find a few with whom we can hang out, share stories and even bond over our nostalgia for France! Let’s find out where to meet the French in New York…
Socialize with the French
There are many websites online that list events for the French community, enabling you to go along and speak French with expats and other francophiles like you. Check the French Institute Alliance Française calendar for an extensive list of events.
Party French style
The French know how to party, and won’t stop just because they live in another country. A few organizations in particular regularly organize events, happy hours and parties for the Francophile community.
Welcome to Little France
Carroll Gardens seems to be the new place to be for French people and already is the favorite location for the annual Bastille Day pétanque tournament.
