jackson heightsFinally, some non-anti-immigrant press!

On my way to work today the cover of AM New York caught my eye.

“Immigrant neighborhoods are…The Engine of NYC”

On jackson heights: “”We’ve put 74th Street on the map,” said Dass, a former president of the Jackson Heights Merchant Association. “This area was not known before. But now, it is known all around the world. Last year, Mayor [Michael] Bloomberg visited here three times.”

  1. This is just the beginning!! This is EXACTLY why I came to NYC, not because of just the desi population but because of the acceptance and mixing of all groups of people. It really is amazing to be around such diversity, not just in the streets but at work as well. I love it!
