“Even though I’m a recent transplant, I can feel the nostalgia as I walk down the streets. Something about that really resonates with me.”

“I grew up in the LES as a young boy and have seen the changes over the years. I’m not going to lie; it’s hard to see gentrification pull apart the fabric of this borough. But hey, at least we have a Starbucks on every corner.”
