The place that I visited was New York City over the summer about three years ago. My mom and I stayed with my aunt who lives in Poughkeepsie, which is about thirty minutes outside of New York City. Poughkeepsie is a small town that you find outside of a big city, it was a small family owned shops that consisted of knick knacks and second-hand stores. My mom and I got in on a late Friday night so we didn 't go out to see the town and instead headed to bed.

- It is hard to pin point one important aspect from a diaspora community, but if you look at them individually you can learn so much. These diasporic community and even New York City as a whole have a sense of nationalism, “which are united people of similar language, religion, culture, and history,” (the year of revolution notes) who are proud of where they came from and who they represent now.

Obviously, your welcome wasn’t really much of a welcome, but more like I can’t wait for you to leave. Well, I got to tell you, the feeling was mutual.... [tags: New York City, Chicago]

- There are so many people suffering in New York City and around the world because they are unable to afford basic necessities for themselves and their families; many are living well below the poverty level. This is because New York City has a major income gap, the biggest gap in any county in the United States (Roberts, 2014). Over the past twenty years, the income gap has just gone up and will continue to rise if we do not find out why it is happening and how to stop it.

- ... In the day and age that I was going to see one of the greatest rivalries of all time both teams had a horrible lineup. The game was relatively early in the season, but both teams lost more games than they had won. By the seasons end the Knicks missed the playoffs by a lot, and the Bulls just only snuck into the last spot. Although being at the game during this time period definitely wasn’t ideal, it was more about being in Madison Square Garden. A place full of basketball history and great fans....

- Journal Entry 3: Lower Manhattan Our third adventure in the course was in Lower Manhattan also known as the Civic Center. Coming from Queens I usually take the N train coming from Astoria to the city so I was running a bit late. I was never great with directions or the subway in general but I impressed myself when I was able to take the train downtown and meet up the rest of the class.
