How Behind The Scenes NYC Started, On Glamour Brazil

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Glamour Brasil

Once again our Founder, Fernanda Paronetto, shared her story about how she decided to leave her “perfect” life in Brazil and move to New York City at 32 years old. She shared how Behind the Scenes NYC started, on Glamour Brazil.

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Glamour Brasil

This time our Founder, Fernanda, shared her story and how Behind the Scenes NYC started, on Glamour Brazil’s online magazine for her Brazilian audience.

If you’re a Portuguese speaker, take a look at the original link to read the full article, written in first person.

A little snippet in English:


Since my teenager years, I always wanted to live in New York. My idea was to move as soon as I graduated from college. But … a decade passed and, when I noticed, I was 30 years old and still living in Brazil.

What happened in those 10 years that I didn’t go to NY?

To be honest, I had only tried once to make this big change. I tried everything. I talked to everyone I knew, asked for contact recommendations, researched courses and MBAs I could apply to, spent hours on LinkedIn…

The first (and unsuccessful) attempt

Everything seemed to be evolving according to plan, but in a short time, all contacts were dissolving, I lost the timing of signing up for the courses, the Skype interviews did not progress … Nothing was working out.

Over the years, I realized that there was a bigger reason why I couldn’t move. It’s a very long story, but, yes, I believe in Karma, faith, the Universe, energy, etc. – and no, I’m not religious at all.

Today I see that everything happened in the most perfect way and that, if I had moved to NY at that time, I would not be 1/10 of the person I am today.

Obviously, I was only able to see the beauty of this failed attempt much later. And you know what? It was spectacular.

Feed Projects: Feeding Children Around The Globe

BTSNYC Social Responsibility Feed Project Empire Stores in Dumbo

FEED is not a common accessories brand. With a beautiful store inside Empire Stores in Dumbo, their charitable mission certainly impresses and have provided over 110 million meals to date!

The mission at FEED is simple: “We create good products that help feed children around the world.

With the start of every new day, we see people questioning everything that’s going on, from climate change and natural disasters, to the undeniable help that underprivileged communities need.

“It’s hard to believe that hunger is a daily reality for 795 million people around the world—limiting human flourishing, health and potential in far too many communities. The most vulnerable are often children, whose mental and physical growth, and ultimately potential to create a better future, is dependent on this most basic human need.”

It seems that world we once knew is now becoming a difficult place to live, but what gives us hope are the thousands of people spread across the planet spreading the good!

New York is one of the busiest cities in the world, but even so, we have special people working to improve the lives of others

FEED is a project idealized and led by Lauren Bush, niece of ex-President George W. Bush and Ellen Gustafson, who started her career working with Communication at the United Nations (UN).

FEED Projects LLC

Lauren was a model for Tommy Hilfiger for two years in her yearly years in college, but shortly after that she became a spokesperson for the UN World Food Program (WFP). This was the trigger for changing her career and her view on the world

After her first trip, where she faced the harsh reality of children on the verge of death in Guatemala, Lauren decided to do more than just be a “spokesperson”.

It was there that she joined Ellen, who was also looking to do something bigger.

Lauren’s passion for fashion and design and Ellen’s desire to do something different had finally merged. The project is simple: a reusable bag, only with the project’s logo, where all income collected is directed directly to the UN World Food Program.

In a short time, the logistics and procedures for the United Nations to sell this bag became so complex and bureaucratic that Lauren and Ellen decided to leave the WFP.

Voilá! FEED Projects was founded!

FEED Projects currently works with numerous organizations such as WFP, of course, and others like UNICEF. Sales are mostly made online, where you will see how your purchase will help these children.

You can literally buy a $60 scholarship and feed a child for an entire year! How incredible is that, right!?

In addition, FEED Shop & Café is their first physical location in New York, located inside the majestic Empire Stores in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

“The shop features an assortment of our newest products, special in-store exclusives and a rotating curation of other socially conscious finds. Our cafe serves the FEED Heritage coffee blend, roasted in partnership with La Colombe, and a delicious selection of pastries and nibbles.”

Most of the bags are made in China, but the most expensive leather items are produced by hand in Kenya and Guatemala.

The models are as diverse as backpacks, classic totes and some duffle bags. And yet, the girls made a line called “Feed NYC” in 2010, with more elaborate bags made by the local clothing industry (of course, to incentivize the local economy) and were sold at Bergdorf Goodman. Oh! Shop the new FEED arrivals!

The project has grown so much that now several brands have become FEED partners. Companies like: Target, Disney, Pottery Barn, Clarins, Whole Foods Market, Gap, Tory Burch, Rachel Roy, DKNY, Links of London, Godiva, TOMS and Nordstrom are part of it.

And also, you can do more!

You can host your own Feed Supper! Here is how it works:


Let’s come together to help our neighbors!

Today, in neighborhoods across the United States, there are over 40 million people who aren’t sure where they will find their next meal. By hosting a FEED Supper, you will join a community helping to change that.

Host a dinner party that provides meals for more than just your friends

Your FEED Supper can be as simple as a pizza party or as formal as a seated dinner. Just ask your guests to make a donation to help fight hunger in advance of the gathering. It’s that simple.

The money you raise will help provide much-needed meals to families across America, through our giving partner, Feeding America. Learn more about their work to end hunger.


Let’s collaborate as well?

Finally, if you live in New York and you’d like to actively volunteer in a feeding program, our Founder Fernanda coordinates one called Friend’s in Need that happens every Saturday morning, at Tompkins Square Park in the East Village.

We would love to have you there helping us!

Hours:
Monday – Saturday: 8am – 7pm
Sunday: 8am – 6pm

Location: 55 Water Street

Arcadia Earth: Augmented Reality Journey With A Purpose

Culture Arcadia Earth DMitchell Agriculture

Arcadia Earth is the first immersive augmented reality journey through planet Earth! They built a creative way to share critical topics of what’s happening to our Home. Come see this augmented reality journey with a purpose!

It has been a while since I had seen such an interesting immersive art installation in New York City like Arcadia Earth, especially considering that they happen all-the-time.

Every week, there is something new to be seen.

But, many of them simply don’t have a bigger purpose behind it and it’s exclusively for commercial reasons and entertainment.

We all know how Instagrammable places create buzz online and so many organic postings, but many brands forget to actually put together something more meaningful.

With the endless crucial conversations that have been going on about Global Warming and how everyone needs to really start understanding the consequences of how they’re living their lives, Arcadia Earth did a truly remarkable work!


The concept was idealized by the Experiential Retail Designer, Valentino Vettori. And I have to say, such a brilliant mind!

“I believe in Retail, I believe in shopping centers, I believe in physical environments. I do NOT believe in how stores are design and operated today, I no longer believe in the $XSQFT formula, I believe in “IMPRESSIONS X SQFT”.”

“The brick & mortar industry is tired and we need to “shake it”. What was yesterday defined as “Lifestyle” should today become “storytelling”. Brands need to rethink their Store layouts where Products are no longer the primary focus.

“Racks of garments and shelves full of goods should make space for experiential display. It’s no longer “Visual Merchandising”, it’s now “Emotional Storytelling”. I’m an Experiential Retail Designer, I believe in Evolution but this time I’m calling for brands interested in Retail Revolution.”

Culture Arcadia Earth Valentino Vettori


What is it?

“Arcadia Earth is a large scale multi-sensorial journey through underwater worlds, fantasy lands, and inspirational art installations. Powered by augmented reality, virtual reality, projection mapping, and interactive environments, you, the explorer, will learn how small lifestyle changes will have a massive impact on the future of our planet.”

Arcadia Earth Purpose:

“Arcadia aims to bring innovative brands, organizations, artists and activists together to showcase the best of the environmental movement and foster engaged conversation. We provide an otherworldly platform to raise awareness about sustainability and circular design.”


The 15 different rooms, in over 15,000 square feet, addresses numerous environmental issues related to Land, Water, Air and Energy. Each room has a great explanation of what is actually happening around the world right now and the huge negative impact it’s causing.

Now, may times we know these facts, but we do not know HOW we can actually contribute to making less of a damage, right? The installations not only show you visually what’s happening, but also aims to bring and offer sustainable solutions.

Before entering, you’ll be advised to download the immersive exhibit’s app. You can also get an iPad to experience it all. Once you enter the rooms, you’ll be able to read how we’re impacting the Earth and what we can do to help!

After that, you follow the instructions on your iPad to experience the beautiful work done with augmented reality and other technologies. It’s hard to explain in words, but you can see our IGTV video on it!


Now, let us share some of the facts you’ll learn more about:

Culture Arcadia Earth DMitchell Coral Reefs
Photo Credit: DMitchell

Did you know:

  • Coral reefs make up 1 percent of the ocean floor, yet are home to over 25% of all marine life;
  • A single drop of chemical sunscreen in enough to contaminate a coral reef environment the size of 6.5 Olympic-sized swimming pools;
  • Coral Reefs are major tourism attractions and approximately 6,000 – 14,000 tons of sunscreen (the equivalent of 38 Boing 747’s) enter coral reef environments every year;
  • Coral reefs the size of 2.5 American football fields die every minute and 90% of the world’s reefs are predicted to be destroyed by 2050.

… You can help:

  • Choose reef safe sunscreen. Mineral-based non-nano options like company raw elements is a great alternative option;
  • Eat only sustainable fish to stop destructive fishing practices like trawling that destroy our reefs;
  • Replace chemical cleaning products with a homemade non-toxic solution of baking soda, white vinegar, alcohol and lemon.
Culture Arcadia Earth DMitchell Plastic in the Ocean

Did you know:

  • The majority of plastic trash ends up in the ocean;
  • Around 4-12 million tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean a year, that’s 1 truckload per minute;
  • Over 4 billion plastic cups are used in the U.S. every year;
  • 2,160,000 plastic bottles are consumed in the U.S. every day;
  • 55,800 pounds of plastic containers and packaging is produced in the U.S. every minute;
  • If we continue at this rate, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

…You can help:

  • Say no to plastic water bottles. Buy a recyclable water bottle and refill it – download the Tap App to find free drinking water stations in the U.S.;
  • Replace plastic straw with paper, hay, bamboo, lemongrass, metal or glass straws;
  • Replace plastic coffee cups with reusable ones;
  • If you must use plastic avoid type #3 – #7, it’s not recyclable (the number is on the recyclable symbol).
Culture Arcadia Earth DMitchell Agriculture

Did you know:

  • Over 50,000 acres of forest (an area the size of 3.5 Manhattan’s) are lost every day at a result of human agriculture. Over 80% of this loss comes from 11 of the most important rainforests in the world;
  • Globally we waste 33% of all food every year – that’s more than 150,000 garbage trucks full of waste every day. The U.S. is one of the worst culprits – food waste has hit 40%;
  • Landfills are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions in the U.S. – 22% of which is made up of food waste;
  • Methane emissions warms the planet 86 times faster than CO2.

…You can help:

  • Plant a tree to absorb carbon from the atmosphere;
  • Compost your organic waste to reduce methane emissions resulting from landfill;
  • Reduce food waste and eat your leftovers;
  • Donate unused groceries to local food rescue organizations;
  • Micro shop – only buy what you will eat;
  • Buy imperfect, organic product to dramatically decrease food waste
Culture Arcadia Earth DMitchell Augmented Reality Installation

Did you know:

  • Textile waste had risen rapidly over the years, yet only 1% of fibers in clothes can be reused to make new garments;
  • The average American will toss 81 pounds of clothing this year, and only 10% will be recycled, meaning 24.5 billion pounds will end up in landfills;
  • 85% of clothes you wear will end up in a landfill – accounting for 5% of all landfill;
  • The main contributors to textile pollution are products that cannot biodegrade or compost – including footwear, bedding, towels and clothing.

…You can help:

  • Demand transparency from brands and retailers (like Zero Waste Daniel offers his clients), when you shop;
  • Ask for sustainable clothes and products, the quality is better, they last longer and are less likely to end up in landfill;
  • Recycle, reuse and repurpose to conserve the energy and resources it takes to product new garments;
  • Look for clothes, shoes and homewares made with TencelTM Fibers as they are created with trees grown in sustainable managed forests, so they are wood-based, compostable, biodegradable, strong and sustainable;
  • Used in apparel, home and footwear, TencelTM Fibers are created from trees grown in sustainable managed forests and have a low environmental footprint.

These are crazy facts, right? Once we get these numbers into perspective, it’s just insane to think and realize what we’re doing to planet Earth.

In addition, not only are you learning in a fun way what’s happening to our Home, but for every ticket sold, Arcadia Earth will plant one tree and donate to their charity partner, Oceanic Global!

Before you leave Arcadia Earth’s exhibition rooms, be sure to Make a Pledge that suits you best. You can:

  • Clean your bills: Switch to a green energy supplier
  • Eat Seasonably: East local, seasonal food
  • Eat Up: Reduce your food waste
  • Fantastic Unplastic: Avoid excessive packaging
  • Fish food: East sustainable fish
  • Fix it: Don’t replace it – repair it!
  • On yer bike: Pedal your way around
  • Passion fashion: Dress yourself sustainably
  • Tap It: Drink tap, use bottle
  • Veg out: Make meat a treat
  • Well oiled: Steer clear of unsustainable palm oil
  • You mug: Dish the disposable cup

Can’t get better than this, right? So, “What do you Vow to?”

We do know it’s hard to sometimes find specific sustainable and eco-friendly products, so take a look at an amazing curation of products in their store.

A Behind the Scenes Look at Behind the Scenes NYC

About BTSNYC What The Press Brooklyn Magazine Behind The Scenes NYC Fernanda Paronetto

Take a look at this amazing feature on the Brooklyn Magazine named “A Behind the Scenes Look at Behind the Scenes NYC”, with our Founder, Fernanda Paronetto.

About BTSNYC What The Press Brooklyn Magazine Behind The Scenes NYC Fernanda Paronetto

Learn more about our Founder, Fernanda Paronetto, and Behind the Scenes NYC! This feature was shot at the WeWork office in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

See a small part of the article below and click to read the full article!


62.8 million tourists visited New York City in 2017, marking the eighth consecutive year of record-breaking growth. But what’s a tourist to do after they’ve hit the major spots? Or if they want to avoid the major attractions in the first place? And where should a local start if they want to explore beyond their go-to’s? That’s where Behind the Scenes NYC comes in.

Ironically, the website cataloguing the city’s hidden gems was founded nearly 5,000 miles away in founder Fernanda Paronetto’s bedroom in São Paulo, Brazil. Fernanda – who goes by Fê – has a penchant for exploration and a knack for finding the best local spots, which she exercised during a trip to New York with her sister in 2014.

About BTSNYC What The Press Brooklyn Magazine Behind The Scenes NYC

“What are we going to do this time?”

That question turned into an Instagram account where she posted about the places she’d discovered on that trip, which would later become @behindthescenesnyc. A couple weeks later, she got a message from a born and bred New Yorker thanking her for the local tip. From there, Fê knew she was on to something.

About BTSNYC What The Press Brooklyn Magazine Behind The Scenes NYC Google Maps

What started as a passion project fueled by a deep love of New York became a business. She enlisted the help of friends living in the city to scout new locations, finding places that looked promising. They’d stop by in person, report back to her, and she would curate and post from overseas.

It wasn’t long before Fê made the transition to the city herself.

Fernanda Paronetto is the founder of Behind The Scenes NYC, an independent online publication and boutique concierge service firm focused on helping people discover New York City like locals.

Before Paronetto spent her days sharing the coolest off-the-beaten-path spots in NY, she built her career experience in Brazil.

But she always dreamed of living in the city that never sleeps, and she always knew she would make it happen — she just didn’t know how.

In this essay, Paronetto walks us through what it took to go from 20-year-old student to successful entrepreneur — despite going through health issues and immigration struggles in the process.

Let her journey inspire you to hustle and grow.

Early career and mindset

I’ve always been a very resilient person, with a lot of perseverance to reach my personal and professional goals, and a few big dreams to check off my bucket list.

Plus, I never really took into consideration what other people said that I could or could not do. After going through my teenage years, and entering adulthood, I truly didn’t give a damn.

I started my career asking my dad for a job at his company during my studies. But little did I know at 20 years old that working with your dad can be harder than working at any other job!

After a while working for my dad, I decided to leave and work for another company in the same import and export field.

Nine months later, I understood that my dad wasn’t the problem, but the industry as a whole didn’t interest me that much.

From there, I started focusing on marketing positions.

Even though working in marketing had always been what I wanted to do, I went to business school. I thought it would give me a much better background in terms of being good with numbers. (It did in fact end up helping me throughout my career.)

Back in college, I told everyone that after graduation I would move to New York City.

I always explain that I just had (and still have) this indescribable passion and curiosity for New York and all that it means.

I just HAD to live there.

What a gift, right?

The extremely talented Tech, Business & Lifestyle Brand Strategist, Sissi Johnson, was author responsible for the fantastic piece.

So, read below an excerpt of the article:


If you believe there is nothing like exploring a city through the eyes of a local, think again. Brazilian Fernanda Paronetto knows all of Big Apple’s best kept secrets.

“I always had this indescribable passion and curiosity for NY, so I was often here visiting, always uncovering the best hidden spots and events. The city is just so dynamic, alive, full of novelties, so multi-cultural, beautiful, with an intense energy – the list can go on forever.”

On starting Behind the Scenes NYC remotely, she said:

“A New York woman in her 40’s sent me a message saying: ‘Hi there! I was born in NYC and have lived here my entire life. But, I didn’t know about this restaurant you wrote about. So, I went to it last night, and simply loved it! Thank you for the tip!’ – I was like: WOW!

“I’m in Brazil, in my room at my mom’s house, giving tips to real New Yorkers who are actually enjoying them and thanking me! There must be something right about what I’m doing…”


As a final point, we are so grateful for this acknowledgement. Plus, it an honor to have Fernanda named as one of NYC’s Top Travel Entrepreneurs.

So, take a look and see what it was all about. Plus, take a look at all the activities and programs of this first year. This is a yearly Camp, so be sure to sign up for next year!
