A New Language Map of Queens

One of the great things about being Director of Legal English Programs (and a linguist) at St. John’s Law School is that Queens is not only the most culturally diverse place in America but also the most linguistically diverse.

And now there’s a map to demonstrate this, created by the Endangered Language Alliance and featured in a recently published book titled  Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas edited by Rebecca Solnit and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro. The map was also part of an exhibit at the Queens Museum.
