Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade NYC-2022

Puerto Rican pride will be celebrated throughout New York City in its typically colorful, in-person fashion this Sunday as the iconic national parade returns to Manhattan following a two-year pandemic hiatus.

The 65th annual event along Fifth Avenue will celebrate the culture, arts, achievements and legacies of Puerto Rico and its people. The parade starts at 11 a.m. and stretches along the iconic Manhattan span between 43rd and 79th streets.

This year it is dedicated to the municipality of Cidra, Puerto Rico, which is also referred to as the Town of Eternal Spring, or el Pueblo de la Eterna Primavera.

See more details here. The festivities begin ahead of Sunday’s big parade, though. The parade organizers and Mayor Eric Adams were set to raise the Puerto Rican flag at Bowling Green Park in Lower Manhattan Friday afternoon to officially kick off the parade weekend. A Central Park Zoo fundraising gala follows Saturday night to support the National Puerto Rican Day Parade’s college assistance efforts.

“This is a milestone year for the Parade, and our return to Fifth Avenue is yet another sign that NYC and the Puerto Rican community are strong, resilient and as vibrant as ever,” National Puerto Rican Day Parade Board Chair Louis Maldonado said in announcing the planned return last month.

44th Annual NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference-2022

  The NYU School of Professional Studies Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality convened top hospitality industry executives and thought leaders from across the US and around the world for its 44th Annual NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City. As always, the Conference provided a deep dive into the current state of the industry and what is to be expected in the months to come.

The first day of content was highlighted by thought-provoking general sessions with high-profile leaders and innovators sharing their insights, as well as break-out sessions that covered groundbreaking topics—from Digital Securities: Tokenized Property Interests and the Capital Stack of the Future to Private Capital—Land of Opportunity in the New Normal Environment.

 Conference Chair Jonathan M. Tisch, chairman and CEO of Loews Hotels & Co. and co-chairman of the board of Loews Corporation, delivered powerful remarks that focused on the future of a reimagined travel industry. While he acknowledged the disruptions the industry has faced, he remained optimistic, stating that “travel is essential to the way we work and live—because it has tremendous potential to connect us—to each other, to ideas, and to opportunity. It brings people together, broadens perspectives, and spurs innovation and progress. It’s the antidote to isolation and tribalism. And at a time of turning in, locking down, and scaling back, it’s more urgently needed than ever.” He reminded those attending the Conference that “by connecting people to each other, to ideas, and to opportunity, we can demonstrate just how essential we are—not just in spite of the challenges of the past several years, but because of them.”

It was truly an elite conference in the Hospitality sector, who is who? in the Hospitality sector attended from all over the world. See more in our World Liberty TV, Business Channels and blogs by clicking here.
