Princess Nokia

The 6 train slows down when it gets to the Bronx, sneaking quietly past residential neighborhoods. The Soundview neighborhood looks a lot like Bushwick: an aboveground train track rattling over bodegas and 99 cent stores, a pizza shop with a video game arcade, and a Caribbean restaurant. The motherly cooks look worried when I don’t order meat, but offer an extra helping of sweet plantains to make up for it.
