What we’re about
New York Persian Cultural Center or NYPC is the first and only Persian Cultural Center in New York City. New Yorkers have been so divers and open minded in exploring new cultures and Persian community in New York have been blending and contributing to the society. NYPC is devoted to facilitate this cultural exchange among our beloved city and community. We are here to strengthen Persian community in New York and add fun, spiritual and meaningful traditions and celebrations to New York society in general. Persian is a broader ethnicity of Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. Each of these countries are well diverse in language and sub-ethnicities like Kurds, Azeries, Hazara, Uzbek, Baluch, Arabs and etc. NYPC teaches languages, cookings and dances. We provide services to New Yorkers such as eBaqali (our online grocery service with free delivery to five borough). We introduce and celebrate with our New York community key events throughout the year. Among them are: winter Solstice (Yalda), Spring Arrival (Norouz, Nowruz), Tirgan (watergun game to celebrate the summer). Please join our social media network (Facebook, Meet-up, Yelp) to stay up to date of our growing events and news.
