FAQ - UrbanMatter


What is UrbanMatter?
UrbanMatter is the Number One online resource for New York music, restaurants, nightlife, culture, and local lifestyle. Yes, we’re like other event websites, but we’re also real New Yorkers who hit the streets to bring you the info that matters most. That’s why we’re awesome. Learn more about UrbanMatter here.

Why that name…?
Well, it’s a long story… To sum it up, after a couple brief stints under temporary names that didn’t have quite the same impact, our staff wanted to pick the perfect name that embodies what we do, which is share everything in New York that matters to you.

And voila, we became UrbanMatter. Because let’s be honest, we only cover what really matters.

I have cool New York stories too. Can I share them?
Yes, yes, and yes! Absolutely. Positively.

We want to hear from you, and we welcome you to submit your New York stories, pictures, and videos. Learn more about how to submit your content to UrbanMatter here.
