About Us

Welcome to ‘The FilAm,’ a new online magazine for Filipino Americans in New York. When
we think of the 55,000 Filipinos in New York City and the nearly 300,000 who live in
the Tri-State of New York-New Jersey-Connecticut, we think of all the stories just
waiting to be written. A wedding at St. Patrick’s, a cousin’s graduation at NYU, or
just playing tourist guide to folks back home who insist on lining up for Letterman.

If you have a personal story you feel like sharing, or know someone fascinating for a
Q-A, send us an email at TheFilAmNY@gmail.com.

We also accept book & film reviews, articles on celebrities, food &
restaurant, fashion, arts & music, smart commentaries and the occasional rant.

‘The FilAm’ is a publication of A & V Media.
