Pauline Park Clip 1: Attraction to Queens
Description: When Pauline was living in Staten Island, she was looking at different neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Even in 1997, she found that Brooklyn was too expensive. She looked into Queens and located an apartment in Jackson Heights. She was attracted to Queens and Jackson Heights because she was already organizing in Queens while living in Staten Island. She had been invited to help co-found Queens Pride House. Jackson Heights is the epicenter of the Queens LGBT community. Queens Pride House moved to Jackson Heights in 2006. Queens is home now, and Jackson Heights is really home.
