French NYC is centered in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens and Greenpoint. Brooklyn is becoming BoBo (Bourgeois-Bohème). French life in Manhattan is centered around Lyçée Français and FIAF on the Upper East Side.

Cartier, Chanel, Dior, Hermes, Lacoste, and Louis Vuitton have New York City stores.

Bouley in Tribeca is currently the top French restaurant in New York City. It is closely followed by Daniel in the Upper East Side, Tocqueville in the Flatiron District, and Jean-Georges in the Upper West Side.

France has had a great influence on New York City. New York Bay was discovered for Europeans by Giovanni da Verrazzano working for King Francis 1 of France in 1524. The French Revolution (1789-1799) forever changed the western dynamic between governing elites and the people they ruled. We are still working that out today.

We bought the central third of our country from Napoleon in the Louisiana Purchase of 1804. Napoleon’s Peninsular War with Spain (1807-1814) led to the independence of the Spanish colonies.

The icon of New York, the Statue of Liberty was a gift of the French people (1886). The concept of “Latin America” is French. The Modern art movement began in France. Paris was the capital of the art world until 1945. Ballets Russes of Paris brought Ballet to  the Americas. French cuisine is still considered one of the peaks of gastronomy. Paris remains one of the world’s fashion capitals.
