The Richmond Hill Love Letter

Last December, I was invited by Bridget Bartolini, founder of the Five Boro Story Project to be a part of the culminating event of The Richmond Hill Love Letter series by sharing my love for Richmond Hill, Queens, alongside poignant storytellers: Richard S. David, Nadia Misir, Sean Kulsum and Bridget Bartolini .

I had the opportunity to share my story of growing up in Richmond Hill and my connection to the neighborhood. In my story I explored the meaning of home, my family history as well as examining the immigrant experience. For me Richmond Hill is my “keepsake box” of childhood memories and coincidentally my son’s keepsake box as well.
