For this assignment I had a couple ideas:
The first is to interview a subway or street performer and find out their story – whether they spend their time performing because they enjoy doing so or whether they perform to pay the bills, what sort of reactions they get, and so on.
The second is to cover gentrification in my neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn – the pros and cons from long-time residents and how it has affected them personally.
The third is to cover L.E.S. Pickle Day on October 15th, which from what I’ve read is basically a street fair where you can sample pickles from different places around the world.
