French In America

French News, American Stories

Our Mission

with 4 comments

This is a place to share all of the stories of French America throughout history and presently. The goal is to showcase the similarities and differences of our two cultures and create a stronger bond between our nations. My son was born in New York and we consider him French and American. The borders are blurred in the age of Obama and the Internet and we must all do our part in building our countries relationships at home and abroad. This is a collaborative project and can not exist without your comments and input.

If you would like to be a part time contributor to this site than please contact me and we can work together!

From our family to yours!

Jonathan, Amelie and Miles

  3. Hey – I’m not French but I play petanque in Bryant Park with La Boule New Yorkaise – a petanque club. We have tons of French members, as well as those from ex-French colonies, and then those like myself who are just obsessed with the game. You should check it out. We have free lessons from 11-6 Monday through Friday.

    Enjoying you blog,
