Zuzanna Tyszka, Full Interview


Zuzanna Tyszka interviewed by Adam Misch


Time Period: 1985 - 2012


Zuzanna Tyszka was born in Poland but moved to the U.S. at the age of 14, settling with her family in Flushing. She enjoyed growing up and attending school in the bustling, multicultural neighborhood but now is ready to move on. In recent years, she says Flushing has become predominantly Asian, especially Chinese, and she misses the more diverse community she remembers. [At about 5 minutes and 20 seconds into the interview, Adam and Zuzanna are interrupted by library staff, this interruption has been edited out.]


Locations discussed: Flushing and Queens College, Queens, NY; Poland
