All That Jazz: Hot Spots For Live Jazz In NYC

The 1920s were an age of great social and political change. For the first time in American history, more Americans lived in cities than on farms. The nation’s total wealth more than doubled between 1920 and 1929, and this economic boom shifted the population into a “consumer society.” Coined by F.

NYC’s Irish History & Where It Lives Today

When you think of New York City, most think of a city rich in ethnic diversity. As the most densely populated city in the United States, New York is a global powerhouse that’s filled with history and as St. Patrick’s Day draws near, we wanted to pay tribute to the Irish culture embedded in the city’s history. No, we’re not suggesting to show your Irish pride by stumbling around the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, but as you do. For the rest of us, we’ll be staying as far away as possible from the parade’s proximity (Fifth Ave from 44th St to 79th St) on March 17th.  So, without further adieu, here is a compiled list of 5 Irish landmarks to visit during this prideful time of the year.
