Argentine New York

Argentine New York used to be centered around a barbershop in Elmhurst, Queens, but now we are all over.

Argentina is a place of dreams. Whether we are Argentine, Argentinian, or Argentinean, we are complicated.  If she opens her heart and embraces you, your love will reach to the very end of the earth.

Fall in love with Argentine New York in TangoBallet, a really good pasta or steak, a glass of Malbec, a piece of art, a soccer game, or a tennis match. Argentina will be the first South American host of the G20 in 2018.
