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.”
