The City Life Org started as a Facebook Group founded by Jean Ferreira on March 5, 2020, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
“When the pandemic hit us in April/May 2020 and New York City shut down, the City Life Org was the only thing I had to keep me busy. It was very hard to see the city that I love like a ghost town. At that moment I realized that I have a mission to serve the public with accurate news about City Life to bring joy to everyone who reads it and help them to keep moving forward during the pandemic, then I decided to launch the website to publish articles, essays, and press releases about the things I love the most: arts, culture, entertainment, education, technology, business, food & drinks, health, beauty, fashion, sports, travel, and environmental advocacy. A couple of months later I checked our Google Analytics and I saw that people from all over the world was coming to the City Life Org website every day to read our news, and a lot of people start to follow our social media pages, so all those things combined just motivates me to keep going strong with the organization. I never missed a day since I launched the website and now I dedicate myself full time to the City Life Org mission. We are a one-person organization at the moment, I made our digital platform all by myself, and I keep updated every day, we don’t have staff yet, I count on the help and support of our contributors who send me articles, essays, and press releases to be published. I’m very attached to details and excellence, so when you’re on the City Life Org website expect to see all commas, dots, paragraphs, images, etc… on the right places, and if you see that something is missed please let me know, I’m going to fix it the right way. I have many ideas and projects inside of our organization, all to be launched at the right time, for now, I just think about the City Life Org 24/7, to make it the best experience for our readers. I’m very thankful for your support, and I promised to do the best I can to fulfill the City Life Org mission”.Jean Ferreira
