Good bye Washington D.C.! And hello to New York. We first checked into our hotel and then we bought an expensive train ticket for 31 dollars. We made our way to the tenement museum to attend a walking tour, “Then and Now,” around the area. Throughout the tour the questions of who gets to decide the change? And what are the community needs? Continues to pop up in my mind. Although we are on the opposite side of the coast, there are many things that never changes. The living conditions, the immigrants, community members, discrimination, and wealth continues to play a huge role in shaping a neighborhood and a city. The tenements at NYC are similar to the SRO, Single Room Occupancies, which we have here in San Francisco. After the tour we discovered the roll ice cream shop called Minus Celsius. I tried some rolled ice cream during Vancouver’s night market but we were all excited because we saw these ice cream online and majority of us wanted to try it. We later walked to the Highline but made a quick stop at Hudson River Park to enjoy the view before we found Highline. After walking Highline we took the bus to connect to the subway so we can go back to Grand St. for hot pot which we wanted to eat for lunch but unfortunately did not have time until dinner.
