What makes a safe neighborhood?
A Living Room on Roosevelt is a collaborative public art project between Queens local and 2016 Create Change Commissions Artist Ro Garrido and Queens Neighborhoods United. This project will bring an interactive living room—a typically private and domestic space—into the commercial corridor of Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights. This site will serve as an intentional space for community members to have conversations, share knowledge and history related to issues of community safety in Jackson Heights. This is a month long event series that will be focused on the intersecting issues present in Jackson Heights as related to immigration, displacement/gentrification, and policing.
