I was born in the Dominican Republic and went to school in Madrid Spain. I love living in diverse multiethnic New York and I enjoy the variety of foods, people and cultures. I especially enjoy my neighborhood because of the friendly nature of everyone on my block. One of the hidden treats that my neighborhood has to offer is the Hispanic Society of America Museum, which is on par with the Metropolitian in its collection of art from Spain. It has paintings by many Spanish masters as well scuplture from every age of Spain's history. It is just three blocks from my home I can see a Velasquez or Goya anytime I want. It is treasure of Spanish art.
We believe in welcoming our guests, and enjoying the diverse people and cultures that these encounters bring. I find that learning about other places and cultures is interesting. All humans share a common decency, respect and love for one another. This coming together of people from all over the world is the essence of New York, unquestionably a very wonderful place right now, of which I am lucky to enjoy.
