At Trattoria L’Incontro restaurant in Ditmars, Astoria, I gathered the words for “I live here” in Albanian, Italian and Macedonian. The owner also spoke about four other languages, but for those I had already found out how “I live here” (or its closest equivalent) is said. I’m finding that the further I get into this project, the more I have to hunt for the remaining languages. There are many more to go though. Get in touch if you live in Queens and speak a language other than English – together we will reach 160!
Albanian: “Unë jetoj këtu”
Italian: “io vivo qui”
Macedonian: Jas živejam tuka
