    Building Power from the Ground Up: Mexican Civil Society in New York


    While it may be true that Mexicans do not constitute a large share of the electorate, in September 2013, Carlos Menchaca became the first Mexican American to be elected to New York’s City Council. Menchaca, who is originally from El Paso, Texas, represents a district that encompasses Sunset Park, Red Hook, Greenwood Heights, Borough Park, Windsor Terrace, and Bay Ridge Towers.

    The development of this Mexican civil society is the product of the unique nature of the community’s migration and integration into New York City. Mexican communities have been in New York as early as the 1920s, but the vast majority of Mexicans in the city today have come within the last 30 years. New York and the tri-state area have become one of the primary hubs for migration from the southern Mexican states of Puebla, Guerrero, Oaxaca, the State of Mexico, Tlaxcala, and more recently, Chiapas. Unlike their northern and central Mexican counterparts from states like Zacatecas, Jalisco, and Michoacán, who have been migrating since the Mexican Revolution, these migrants from the south have entered the migrant stream only over the last three decades.

    Moreover, unlike most of their northern and central Mexican counterparts, most Mexican migrants in New York are indigenous people who are racialized and segmented into the labor force in unique ways, along with other indigenous migrants from the mountains of Ecuador, Guatemala, and other countries. Many of these migrants are native speakers of indigenous languages like Nahuatl, Mixteco, Zapoteco, Otomíe. In fact it is not uncommon to meet Mexicans who have learned Spanish while learning English in New York. Mexican integration into the city’s cultural, social, and political life has taken on its own path and its own unique characteristics.

    The most famous corn of New York City

    Apparently the most famous corn in New York City is the mexican style corn

    Mexican style corn, the most famous corn of New York!


    The grilled corn was delicious and seasoned with Mexican cheese, mayo and chili powder and a side of lime for you to squeeze over.
    Grilled corn Mexican style (served with mayonnaise, cotija cheese, chili powder and lime): yummy burst of flavors and the corn was grilled well. Worth trying, but I find it too pricey to have on a regular basis! This costs $7.95 for 2 corns.
    The corn is always perfectly grilled and densely coated with cotija cheese. Every bite is packed with flavor. LOVE.

    Damn New Yorkers sure spend tons of money on Mexican food/snacks but yeah mexican style corn is the best in the world. You just add mayo, cotija cheese, and chile powder, the corn can be grilled or boiled



    These mofos even make blogs and videos on Mexican style mangos and our flower cutting LOL
    Central and South Americans now have been selling our snacks cause they know their shitty food cant sell like ours does
