    Dear Genesis,

    I am interested in your post, “first time in New York” because not all people help people. It’s very difficult for them to speak their own language, because some people are racist against hispanic people. One person in your story decided to help this person as he behaved when he was going to eat. When I was in New York for the first time nobody helped me I felt that nobody knew I was Hispanic because of my way of acting they think i am from New york city but i am Honduras and you can call me Catracho.
    Thank you for your story. When i see some people speak spanish i will help them.

    I identified with the woman who heard Spanish and immediately wanted to help. New Yorkers may be in a hurry but we can be kind!

    This is a cool recollection of your visit. It shows a first hand account of one of the many things you came across in that vibrant and energetic city.
