For 35 years people have played dominoes on this East Harlem block. Feliciano, in the white shirt, is originally from Loíza, but has been here over 60 years now.

“We play dominos because it’s part of our tradition and culture since we were kids. We also play because it relaxes the mind and is a good way to spend time with your friends.”

La Respuesta

For over a century, Puerto Ricans have lived and settled in the U.S. (the “Boricua Diaspora”), but now, for the first time, there are more acá than allá. In response to our growing presence and ongoing impact, La Respuesta seeks to invoke a claim to our histories and announce our stories. This will be done by highlighting our assets and distinct experiences, agitating discussion on the crucial issues, and addressing the obstacles that we face.
