Thanks a million, New York

There are over 19 million Meetup members worldwide, and as of today, New York City is home to a million of them. New York is the first city to cross the million member threshold, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

Meetup was born in NYC, and New York is our home. Over the past twelve years, we’ve watched New Yorkers come together to build a stronger, smarter, healthier city. Today we’re more connected than ever, and now we can’t imagine it any other way.

To honor the occasion, we asked NYC Organizers what inspired them to find the others. Check out the video above to hear what they had to say.

Cheers to you, New York.
