Our second cohort for the latest series of Neighborhood to Neighborhood project all hail from two Facing History and Ourselves schools in Manhattan, high schools in the Lower East Side and the East Village. The Rookies from East Side Community High School and Essex Street Academy tirelessly reported on their multimedia stories--on topics about sneaker lines, the English language, art and violence, and homophobia.
The Neighborhood to Neighborhood Project was made possible by the Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in The New York Community Trust and The MacArthur Foundation.
