Two themes developed as our class tried to capture the latest developments in the oldest and the newest New York City
Chinese neighborhoods, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. It was clear in lower Manhattan that Sandy had lasting
effects on neighborhood institutions and the Chinese community. The collection of documentaries shows how stores, individual workers, and community organizations pulled together after the storm, “After the Lights Went Out”.

On the other hand, in Brooklyn, near Avenue U, the effects of Sandy weren’t as great. Instead, the students found that there were “Two Sides of the Street” along Avenue U, and these documentaries show how the Russian and Chinese immigrants coexisted right next to each other, peacefully and still apart.
