Lin-Manuel Miranda announces partnership between NYC and Puerto Rico

The tourism marketing organizations for New York City and Puerto Rico have announced a first-ever partnership to encourage travel between the two destinations.

NYC & Company and Discover Puerto Rico signed the official alliance at an event hosted by award-winning film and theater star Lin-Manuel Miranda at El Museo del Barrio in Manhattan on Tuesday. Miranda’s Broadway hit “Hamilton” will have a limited engagement in Puerto Rico in January, with Miranda reprising his role as Alexander Hamilton.

“I’m here to tell you that Puerto Rico is waiting for you,” said Miranda, whose parents were born in Puerto Rico. “They need your money, they need your visits, they need your support. They need as many voices as possible.”
