"Queens (as the world's) Village: Know your Neighbor" is a socially interactive photography project detailing the neighborhood of Queens Village. It exposes and addresses the issue of cultural indifference by educating and uniting the diverse business owners and residents in a series of programs, panel discussions and workshops.
