Welcome to our site Yemen Across the Atlantic! On this site, we document and explore the stories and histories of immigration to New York City, specifically Brooklyn, through the microcosm of Yemen Cafe. 

The story of Yemen Cafe opens up new ways of conceiving of immigration from personal narratives, architectural history, the political-economic dynamics of gentrification, the dynamics of cultural change, and much more.

Many thanks to our friends at Yemen Cafe who generously offered us an opportunity to peak into their world so that we may all understand ours a bit better.
