What a Fire in the Bronx Says About Immigrant Life in New York

We previously blogged about how many immigrants from West Africa lived in the buildings that burned in the Bronx earlier this month.  In this New Yorker story (What a Fire in the Bronx Says About Immigrant Life in New York), Alexis Okeowo looks at what the fire reflects about immigrant life in teh Big Apple:  "The death of seventeen people, most of them from the Gambia, evoked the city’s long history of failing to provide safe and affordable housing for migrants."
