From Shanghai to...Queensbridge
I don't usually read the Fresh Air Fund articles in the Times, but this one caught my eye.
A 70-year-old Chinese couple move from Shanghai in 1995 to the US and end up living in the Queensbridge Housing Projects for $421 a month. Would they know Nas if he walked by with some childhood friends? Or any other famous rap impresarios?
This is almost as disparate as Sierra Leonean refugees being put in St. Paul, Minnesota.
