Share with the class your experience: How was your visit to Jackson Heights? What challenges did you find? What worked and what didn’t? What would you have done differently? What would you change or modify for next time?
The visit to Jackson Heights was filled with good food, smells and sounds of a community filled with diversity. We found that people did not want to stop and talk in the rain , it took some finesse to have people talk to us. After asking people “are you in a rush” a couple of times and people answering yes and quickly dismissing us, we started opening up with “are you from Jackson Heights.?” After approaching people with a better conversation opener our interviews went well. We interviewed three people from different age groups, and ethnic backgrounds. The only thing I wish was different is the weather it was a cloudy day.
