Created in 2010, this festival's mission is to pass the future of jazz on to younger generations.

This is also a gathering for celebrations in swing, where artists from as far as Brazil and Trinidad, and as close as New Orleans and Harlem, will join in on the fun.
Set to open within the next few months ("late 2014"), this 50-story Upper East Side hotel is truly one of a kind in New York City. Located opposite the Museum of Modern Art on 5th Ave, upon walking inside, the hotel entrance dazzles with light reflecting off of the 12,000 Baccarat glass pieces. The opulence continues throughout the hotel -- with handmade custom chandeliers hanging in The Grand Salon, and guest rooms that feel as though you're living in a modern Parisian-chic apartment in the heart of New York City.
Maialino chef Nick Anderer and famed restaurateur Danny Meyer will bring us delicious thin-crusted Roman-style pizzas at their new restauarant called Marta, located at the newly renovated Martha Washington hotel at East 29th street.
