Nowaday is a full-stack experience company uncovering and narrating every city’s most fascinating stories so we can all feel them first-hand. Launching with a private and on-demand "Roaring '20's" classic car tour in NYC, Nowaday has built an experience that highlights the unique culture and history of the city, and invites travelers to step into the story of the real New York. Our team, backed by funding from leading VCs, is poised to redefine the way that people experience cities.
