The vibrant restaurant and food scene is what makes New York one of the greatest cities in the world. After an uncertain year for many in the business, the streets of the Big Apple are buzzing once again.
To celebrate, the city sponsored NYC Homecoming, a weeklong celebration featuring 100+ cultural and community events across all five boroughs.
To support this event, our team scripted, directed and produced two videos celebrating the resiliency restaurateurs displayed throughout the pandemic and the industry’s impact on the communities it serves. The video was played at NYC Homecoming events throughout the city in addition to being featured on CNN.
The celebration featured concerts by Paul Simon, KRS-One, Carlos Santana, Jennifer Hudson, Raekwon, George Clinton, Bruce Springsteen and many others on the Great Lawn in Central Park and throughout the five boroughs.
