On this week’s Latino USA, producers spend a day in a bodega in Harlem, NYC — home to one of the biggest Dominican populations in the U.S. They uncover stories about nutrition, migration, community, and the slow threat of gentrification.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. It captures the life in the bodega–from its history to its current social issues!
Maybe some one can tell me what the Cuban singer that die at age 85
Well loved the stories. Still trying to. Find the name of the singer female. Cuban woman. The was well known only in Cuba. Love her voice. Want to. Hear more. Need a name. Did not.
I so enjoyed this program! Thank you for producing I really like the whole human experience.
as a lower east side resident whose #1 and #2 bodegas closed in the past year’s time this story was spot on. The #2 closed this week and I have no idea what Im going to do! I guess go one block the #3…
What a great piece of radio. Solid reporting, amazing sounds. Just wonderful.
I wish there were bodegas here in SoCal:-(
Thanks for highlighting issues like healthy food access and cultural dislocation. It was insightful and so eye opening. Keep connecting us with stories like this.
If by “honoring civility” you mean be shut-up if you have something critical to say, I’ll pass…and you can continue to prattle on about “La Tinos” and the perpetuation of the endless stream of convenient stereo-types we never seem to run out of. Perhaps stories about “La Tinos” that long ago escaped the oppression of ghettoes and slums for the mainstream of success would be a refreshing and welcome change…ya e’ tiempo, no cree’?
