The history and traditions of the many, varied Latino and Hispanic cultures in NYC. Explore Latino Christmas traditions through the Nacimiento and Altar de la Virgen de Guadalupe in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Arboles de Navidad at Bryant Park and Rockefeller Center and we will study Muralism in Rockefeller Center. We will explore NYC landmarks of the past and present that attracted migration from Latin America at the NY Botanical Garden: Holiday train show. We will study Spanish Medieval Art at the The Met: Cloisters museum. Students will watch the Broadway show John Leguizamo’s: Latin History for Morons on Netflix to study the forgotten influence of Latinos in American History. Lastly, we will be attending a performance of the play LA GRINGA at the Repertorio Espanol theater; the play explores the search for identity among 2nd and 3rd generation NYC Latinos.  Every day we will expose students to Latino Cuisine such as, Puertorican Cuchifritos, Chinese-Cuban fusion, Mexican almuerzo, traditional Dominican food and Colombian Desayuno.
