Brazilian NYC

Brazilian NYC is centered in Little Brazil in Manhattan (West 46th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues), and Astoria, Queens around 36th Ave at 33rd St. Our biggest community is in Newark, New Jersey.

We make great soccer, music, fine art, architecture, and fashion. We drink cachaça and smile a lot. Brazilian Day and Brasil Summerfest are our big New York parties. Wednesday is Brazilian Night at Nublu in the East Village.
