A big thank you to Tom Baker of New York Daily News for today’s article about the “I live here” project. It starts:

And the two latest translations of “I live here” added to this website are in Burmese and Estonian:
Pronounced “Ngar Dee Hmar Nay Dae”
Ma elan siin
The current (and growing!) list of languages spoken in Queens is here. Get in touch with translations, short videos, suggestions. Thanks!
