NEW YORK FRIENDS: 2,900+ New Yokers & 100,000+ International Friends

Best Things in Life are Free!

If you are culture, language, travel, and/or fun lover, and you like to enjoy them for free, this is the group for you!!

If you are a new comer or happen to be traveling to New York, welcome to contact this friendly group also!

We will connect to other non-profit WTC communities worldwide. Wouldn't it be nice if you travel to Europe, Tokyo, Toronto, Hongkong, China, or Thailand, you get to meet lots of local residents there, and they may as well show you around and do the interpretation for you free of charge? Let alone the valuable information, assistance, friendship, and security... It may even facilitate the trips that were originally impossible for many of us.


Global Collaborations for a Better World

We live in an ever-shrinking global village, where modern technologies connect people from any corner of the world in a way and intensity never seen before. We also have the fortune to live in a vibrant city that is home to diverse cultures and people of various ethnic backgrounds.

The goal of this Meetup group is two-fold:

(1) To promote cross-cultural dialogue and cultural/language exchange through a variety of local activities and events, as well as international trips.

(Participation in these events is always optional and the organizers are not charging for service.)

(2) To build a chain of WTC groups worldwide so that you have friends all over the world.

(You get to visit them or participate in group events if you travel there. We will also facilitate on-line events so that you can keep in touch with each other after returning to your home town or get to know people at your travel destinations while you are planning your trip...)

The World Cultures and Travel in New York (WCT-NY) Group gives you an opportunity to experience some of the many international cultures that New York hosts, to share your knowledge of your own cultural heritage with other event participants, and meet new friends and expand horizon while doing so.
