The Stories of Us: Arriving and Adjusting in New York City

Professor: Els de Graauw
ITF: Ben Miller
Campus: Baruch College

The site, like the course it emerged from, focuses on how immigrant groups have integrated or not integrated into American and New York society. Various site sections — linked in the site’s top navigation bar — highlight a number of common projects: a brief biography and photo from each of the site’s authors; audio-recorded immigration stories from the authors, shared and embedded via SoundCloud, which allows for timed comments within the audio stream; statistical profiles of five major immigrant groups in New York, based in part on recent ACS survey data; and representative excerpts from interviews with individual immigrants, organized according to their countries of origin. A consistent visual style to the data figures and other visuals on the site contribute to a sense of unity across these various sections.
