Instead, the organization will host new hybrid learning programs all across the city.

Plus, a new way to celebrate the diverse Latino cultures in New York City thanks to a partnership between NYC & Company and Warner Bros. Pictures.

It's called New York City Latino Experience and it all came together with the release of the new film "In the Heights."

Joe speaks to NYC & Company spokesperson Adriana Aristizábal about how the guide works.
