The actual Mayor of New York declares 4/16 as foursquare day!
Fourteen cities have officially recognized this Saturday’s foursquare day (4/16), but this one is the most special for us – our amazing community of users has convinced our hometown Mayor to declare a foursquare holiday in New York City. Mayor Bloomberg (not to be confused with the Mayor of our office, front-end engineering intern David), swung by our headquarters earlier today to hand-deliver the proclamation.
The Mayor was excited because foursquare is a fast-growing business sprung from his city, and there are over 7,500 other local New York businesses (and a quarter million globally) finding new customers every day on foursquare. We were pumped to give him a foursquare hoodie and foursquare day shirt. If you, like Mayor Bloomberg, want to join the celebration this Saturday, find a foursquare day meetup near you at meetup.com/foursquare. There are over 1000 parties around the world!
