Argentine NYC is a small, but vibrant community centered in Corona, Queens.
There is a strong Argentine curatorial presence at Americas Society and Film at Lincoln Center. American Ballet Theatre has two great Argentine dancers. The Argentine Consulate has active art and music programs. You can dance Tango every night at several NYC milongas (Tango dances).
Tango is popular around the world. New York Latin Culture Magazine™ grew out of Tango Beat®, the world’s most popular Tango magazine. Our inspiration was the Tango Map of Buenos Aires.

We are famous for Tango and soccer, but also have a culture of books and the European classical arts. We have strong coffee culture too.
Argentina experienced significant European immigration in the 1800s, at the same time as New York City had big bursts of growth. We both have deep Italian cultural influences. Back in the day, rich Italians migrated to Argentina, poor ones moved to New York. Most of the Spaniards came from Galicia.
Argentine rockers have been one of the major influences on the development of Latin rock, including in the United States. Argentine New Yorkers also stand out in the classical arts of orchestral music, opera and ballet. Many NYC film presenters have some Argentine filmmakers on staff.
The first Europeans who came to what is now Argentina were eaten by the Indigenous peoples. Eventually the Spanish came. The African Diaspora came because Buenos Aires was a free city. In the pampas we mixed together into Gaucho culture.
Then the Italians came. Germans and Jewish people came too. We are all of this, but the Italian influence is strong.
Argentines played major roles in the liberation of South America, and the development of Latin Rock (Rock Nacional), which we now call Latin Alternative.
