Nepali and Tibetan Immigrants Thrive in the Union Square Greenmarket
The Greenmarket was founded in 1976 to promote locally grown products directly to New York consumers hungry for fresh, high quality produce. Four days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) there are dozens of stalls selling a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish and baked goods.
About five percent of the salespeople are Nepali and Tibetan and the number is rising because of a tight-knit community network and mouth-to-mouth publicity.

Hope and Pain - The Story of an Unaccompanied Minor
Despite getting a second chance after arriving in the US, Darlin Adonay Peña faces an uncertain future.
He left behind a childhood of forced labor and a family he barely knew without a clear plan of what to do once he reached the United States or even knowing whether there was a chance to get papers allowing him to work.
What happened after he arrived was a surprise. Border Patrol sent him to a shelter with hundreds of kids alone and scared like him. He met attorneys there who listened to his story and told him there was a way to help him stay in the country legally.
An immigration judge granted him a green card. He got to live with Americans who cared about him in a way no one ever had. He then got a dormitory room in a transitional-living program, a place supported by federal funds and private donations for youths who are getting back on their feet. He enrolled in school and found the full-time job.
