This word came up in todays class discussion. I wanted to know the difference between interface and overlap in reference to our project.

ENG 1101 Classwork: Will Self and Project #2 drafting

To continue drafting and developing Project #2, please share with the class what your project is about. We will use that statement as a draft of a thesis statement.

We will also review Charles McGrath’s New York Times article, “A Literary Visitor Strolls in from the Airport,” and annotate a copy of it.

Project #2: homework

I have decided to tackle on the subject of two different social status being next to each other. I find this intriguing because when actually looking at this example in person it gives off a bizarre feeling. My location consists of two stores that are found in two completely different boroughs which is Manhattan and The Bronx. Both of these boroughs hold reputations that contrast against each other. Manhattan is known as a place where you can make all your dreams come true and filled with such extravagance. Meanwhile The Bronx is known for being impoverished and dangerous due to high crime rates. By knowing the reputations of the two boroughs it gives of an odd feeling of being together. But at the same time it makes sense to place the contrasting stores next to one another because what makes up New York City is the five boroughs, not Manhattan on its own as most people portray it. My location being in Brooklyn seems to unify the other two boroughs while being a borough on its own instead of just being a mash up. From the reading excerpt “City Limits” by Colson Whitehead, the author states that “Except that probably we’re neighbors. That we walk past each other every day, and never knew it until now”. By this statement, with my location most people would just brush pass by it without noticing the great contrast it holds while being next to each other. Whitehead also mentions that everyone has their very own New York. So with someone staying within the New York they know that’s all they get live. My location holds three New Yorks which two that overlap while the third New York unifies them. If someone were to come to this location it’s as if they are expanding their New York by intertwining with the other New Yorks.
