Yessica Martinez is a #poet who focuses on topics of #family and #migration. She was born in #Medellin #Colombia and migrated to #Corona #Queens with her family when she was 10 years old. She felt that her true home was back in Medellin, and after she graduated from Princeton University, she returned to her old neighborhood to work for a community-based arts organization as an independent literature promoter and creative writing teacher. It was after she went back to Medellin that she realized how much Corona had become part of who she is.

Hear Yessica's story and poetry at the "Almost Home/ Casi Llegando a Casa" Culminating Celebration this Saturday Jan 27 at 6pm at D'antigua! This free event will have performances of poems, songs & true life stories about Corona, #Elmhurst, and #Jackson Heights, examining issues of #immigration, #gentrification, #displacement, and how we create "home." There will be #livepainting, a pop-up #art installation, and an #openmic, so come share your own stories & thoughts with us!

This is another one of the light-bricked "renovations" in the neighborhood. The second image shows what the house used to look like (apologies for the pixelation). The old house was not completely demolished, and was simply covered up in that brick. Notice how the old house had various forms, materials and shapes, whereas the new house is one large solid rectangular prism covered in the same brick (which doesn't work for the neighborhood's character or the Northeast's climate). At least they kept some of the grass, but the most significant damage (since the house isn't as gaudy as some other ones) is the complete destruction of the setbacks and lines of sight across the whole street. The former house had a one-story projection (as most traditional houses do), and therefore had two setbacks, while the new house is one solid wall of brick. Please share your thoughts. #mcmansion #mcmansionmonday #kewgardensny #somuchbrick #whyowhy #notaste #trappedinside .

Meet Your Neighbor: Enzo & Genaro Jaramillo

Genaro (Right): I was born in Peru, and I came to this country at the age of three. I grew up in Elmhurst so when people ask me where I’m from, I say, "I’m from Queens.” The day I heard my DACA application was accepted, I was smiling so big. When you get news like that, you feel like you've achieved something. You feel accepted. You feel proud of yourself.

In five years, I’ll be finishing school and going into journalism. I think the DACA program is very useful for people who want to live in other places. Once I heard they wanted to end it, I felt very upset. I kept asking, “Why is this happening?" I think everyone should be welcome in the United States.

Enzo (Left): I was born in Peru and moved here when I was 2 years old.

I see in the news that our president is changing a lot and making things difficult for people like me and my brother. When it came time to renew our DACA status, we needed support with the application and fees. The staff at QCH helped us so much. They walked us through the paperwork and waived the $1,000 fee.

I have Dreamer friends who I refer to QCH. I tell them, "Don't be discouraged by the changes that are happening. Look for help. That's what got us through." #QCHMeetYourNeighor #DefendDACA #DACA #Dreamers #HeretoStay #queensny #itsinqueens #qns #qnskids #queenscapes

Words can’t express my fillings 🍜 for you 🥟😍These are the #pork #soupdumplings from Stall 12 at the #newyorkfoodcourt in #Flushing #queensny #nyc and they are perfect for a #flushingfoodcrawl, a touch smaller than typical #xiaolongbao which leaves plenty of room to eat lots of other goodies at the food court and lots of porky flavor 🐷 You can find these soup dumplings along with our other XLB favorites in Queens on our #queenseatssoupdumplinglist now up on our website with a link in our bio! See if you can eat all of them by the end of winter! #GOALS #queenseats #queenseatsmust

Half traveler. Half tourist. 🌃

there is a kind of hope held in the energy of these days. the first edges of spring into winter, premature yet always invigorating in the ways you can never fully explain- an expansion of cells in the body, reaching, to absorb this sunshine, feel this moment- the way memories are dormant and waiting for reincarnation, encased in a scent, a warmth, a feeling. days like this remind me there is always spring on the other side of winter. there is always a way back home from the cold. // somehow i am always transported back to walking the triboro after the darkest depressions of my life- being up high, winter turning spring, touched by the sun, the wind. // appreciating the cycles, in nature, in emotions, in myself, is what i try to do every year- some years easier than others.. #grateful #astoryofastoria #trustthecycles #sundaze #queenscapes
