Got writer's block?

Yellow PiggieWhenever I get writers block or start feeling down about the watering down of Latino neighborhoods in New York, (where are the priced-out folks moving too!?) I frequent 99 Cent Stores (where, for some reason, items usually cost between $1-$3US) and get lost in the colorful tchotchkes and  the aroma of Mistolin, the kind of all purpose cleaner Caribbean folks use that come in flavors like Raspberry and Imperial Garden!

  1. Lol… I love Rocio and Baby myself! My landlord has taken me to court like 12 times in six years trying to get me out of my rent stabilized apartment… and if I didn’t know my rights, I would have been evicted six years ago. The most recent thing was a noise abatement letter threatening to initiate eviction procedures if the noise didn’t stop… that noise are my 3 and 4 year old whose innocent acts are protected by the Housing Act in regards to Families w/ Children. I live in Harlem, because I was already priced out of Williamsburgh by the time I finished school!
