Whether they are born-and-bred New Yorkers or have embraced the City as home, many creatives and entrepreneurs can’t imagine being anywhere but New York City. That connected experience is the foundation for the Rising Latino Stars of New York City—a roundup of Latino talents who use their gifts locally and amplify them globally. These individuals come from all walks of life and hail from everywhere: El Paso to upstate to uptown. They share multigenerational immigrant experiences that connect them through the Latino diaspora, but they all have original, compelling stories to share.
They’ve used NYC as a launching pad for a floral-design business, culinary innovations, a digital archive that focuses on overlooked Latino stories and so much more. And through their creativity and know-how, they have helped build on the Latino experience in New York City. Read about them in our profiles below. —Sasha Rodriguez
