Two Blocks Apart.

Description of new work

This book juxtaposes the lives of a Puerto Rican and a middle class white boy in the same community on the Upper West Side of New York. Marshall McLuhan wrote:"A blazing icon of hope. By living out the world experience two blocks apart these boys are creating the answers and the bridge to a new world."
