Welcome to the New Immigrant in the City Blog!

Being a new immigrant in New York City is an exciting, but challenging journey. Starting a life from scratch in the Big City offers a chance for a new beginning.  We look forward to creating a blog that supports new immigrants through their first critical years here.  Together we will create a narrative of common experiences, share practical information and discuss issues we face every day.

    Hello,
    My name is Scarlett Wilson and I work with Brooklyn Independent Media,
    a cable TV and digital network produced and created by BRIC at its state of the art media facilities in downtown Brooklyn. Brooklyn Independent Media focuses on Brooklyn arts, culture, and news topics. Brooklyn Independent Media’s current line-up includes BK Live, a new flagship daily show that highlights local stories and personalities from the borough’s diverse neighborhoods.

    Your blog and Brooklyn Independent Media have similar missions, sharing engaging and compelling news stories that connect with the people of Brooklyn, and beyond. We would love your help in sharing these insightful videos and spreading the word within your blogging community.

    The video content below features Luna Ranjit, co-founder of Adhikaar, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of Nepali-speaking communities, Charlene Obernauer, executive director of the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Tricia Lee of Polish Bar Brooklyn.

    Once a luxury service, nail salons have become nearly ubiquitous in NYC. So much so that we have more nail salons than Starbucks locations. One would assume the quantity of salons is the reason for the extremely low prices but there are other more disturbing causes. Nail salon workers are being systematically exploited through illegal wage discrimination, exposed to hazardous, cancer causing chemicals and an ethnic caste system that preys upon their immigration status, language barriers and limited economic power.
