New York | Nueva York ft. Peralta Project

December 5, 2014



"I've been asked - "If you could live anywhere in the States, where would you live?" Without an ounce of hesitation, my answer will always be "New York City". It is the city of dreams, the city of my dreams. You see how attracted I was to Peralta Project's headgear. It put a clever twist into the traditional snapbacks and cultural permanence of the teams."

I've been asked - "If you could live anywhere in the States, where would you live?" Without an ounce of hesitation, my answer will always be "New York City". It is the city of dreams, the city of my dreams. Hope lives in every crevice. Reality checks aren't too far away either, cohabiting with hope as neighbors. It's not that New York City creates the illusion of success, it actually posses the opportunities. Sure, we can't all own a brownstone worth a couple million dollars but why say such things when the possibilities are in your hands and in the universe. New York City is raw. There's a space for everyone. The encounters with people are always unique and strangely welcomed. I think it has to do with the diversity that thrives in the city. New York City doesn't see color as much as it sees a hustle, a lot of passion, and an insane amount of work ethic. All qualities anyone can possess. We are the assholes that will elbow you on the street and the same person that will start a conversation with you at a bar over a round of free tequila shots. We are the indies, the Jazz, the alternatives fighting to keep their voice relevant or to simply express ourselves. We are the born and raise New Yorkers, the newly New Yorkers, and the short term visitors. Most of all, we exist in everyone, in every shape, and in every language.

You see how attracted I was to Peralta Project's headgear. It put a clever twist into the traditional snapbacks and cultural permanence of the teams. I've always loved the history and culture of different origins. I'm quite a nerd and documentary freak. And there's nothing that I enjoy more than when that culture creates their own unique position in a new space. Peralta isn't just Latino inspired. It's New York Latino inspired.
