New York Centennial: Queens & The Bronx

Historian Kenneth T. Jackson comments on the appeal New York has always held for immigrants, Jimmy Breslin remembers the white, working-class Queens of his youth, and NPR''s Margot Adler reports on the changes the new immigrants have made in Queens.

Commentator Leon Wynter talks about his experiences as a Bronx native. Copyright 2020 NPR. To see more, visit
