As the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro are set to launch, New Yorkers (and the world) turn their sights to Brazil.
South America’s largest nation is a melting pot of people — African, European, Asian and indigenous — that presents a rich and colorful culture. While you may not be able to get a ticket down south, you can still have an authentic Brazilian experience right here in New York. Wander through Manhattan’s historic Little Brazil for a look into the expat community’s past, head to Queens for authentic food and dance to Brazilian beats in Brooklyn.
Ready, set, obá!
