Bring people together and explore NYC.

About "Conversations New York"


Hundreds of New Yorkers coming together in small groups of neighbors

and fellow citizens to discuss topics of intensive interest…

Hosted at no cost and at convenient locations and times…

Aided by simple guiding principles…

Inspired by the city’s grand tradition of robust conversation…

Our vision is to inspire, organize, publicize, facilitate and celebrate a renaissance of healthy dialogue in New York City.

Our Mission:

1. Encourage and support interesting and important conversations among New Yorkers at the grass-roots level,

2. Establish simple, affordable, and sustainable infrastructure to foster such conversations throughout the city year-round.

3. Add to the worldwide image of New York as a metropolis where culture and intellect thrive among the people.

4. Maintain conversations with a human face by discussing topics in-person.
