The Russian Brighton Beach in New York
Brighton Beach is the heart of the Russian-speaking world of New York. Here you can meet representatives of all the former republics of the Soviet Union. The area received the nickname “Little Odessa” as a result of the unique colors created by the natives of this Black Sea city, and it is often called simply Brighton.
Migration Situation in New York
Migrants have always played a key role in the economy of American cities. Think of the hundreds of Chinese laundries opened in San Francisco in the middle of the 19th century or street vendors from Eastern Europe who flooded New York at the beginning of the last century.
