THE CITY STORY

"For those who are lost, there will always be cities that feel like home."
- Simon Van Booy

The City Story aims to enrich the experiences and interaction between people and cities.

Cities can be big, confusing, anonymous places – whether you’re a first time visitor, a new resident, or a seasoned local. But cities are also full of incredible stories, amazing people, and unique places – knowing these is the difference between being a stranger and feeling part of a community. We want to share these stories with people, helping them create a personal, emotional connection to their cities and communities.

The City Story is a city guide and local discovery platform that maps cities through their hidden stories. Whenever you open a City Story map, you surround yourself with stories from nooks and corners of neighbourhoods across the city. We work with a network of local writers, photographers, and artists to make cities familiar, and we currently focus on Mumbai and London.

 
The City Studio is the commercial services arm of The City Story. We work with our partner brands to create compelling content – using text, photographs, maps, video, and graphics – to tell their stories. We also custom create exclusive products for our partners and provide insight and strategy to help build their brand.

Our current partners include Airbnb, Uber, and British Land.
