Ivorian NYC is present in art and food. We’re mostly in The Bronx. There are Ivorian restaurants in Morrisania and Mott Haven.
Ivorian culture is a unique blend of West African traditions. The Côte d’Ivoire is very diverse. Akan is the biggest group. Today, many West African peoples live in Côte d’Ivoire. There is a large diaspora in Ireland.
Caribbean and West African traditions are very similar. There has been cultural transfer in both directions.
