There are many different ethnicities around the world, and New York City is the most ethnically diverse city in the United States. Queens is the easternmost and largest in area of the five boroughs of New York City. Today we visited the most diverse borough in New York: Queens.
Here are the photos taken during our time visiting the Lower East Side and the Brooklyn Bridge. First we took a tour inside the Tenement Museum, and then we walked around the Lower East Side.
Everyone has safely returned from their study away trip to NYC. Thanks to Katherine Deruyck for this great video of the group’s week. Who’s hungry? The week in pictures (video)
Hello from NYC! Throughout our time here we will be looking for evidence about the “melting pot” theory – is it or is it not happening?
We started our amazing and diverse day with breakfast and then were off the the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Being there was like walking through time: touching the same railings, sitting on the same benches, and walking the halls of my ancestors before me.
In the next week, I will count to 15 several times a day. I am the CCV staff member lucky enough to travel with 15 students to New York City as part of CCV’s study away program.
Join us this month on CCV Now for a journey to New York City! The fall 2017 Study Away class, Ethnicity and Diversity in the United States, is embarking on an eight-day tour of the city beginning January 6th.
