Bensonhurst is home to one of the fastest growing Chinese populations in New York City, increasing by 57% between 2000 and 2010. But what does this mean for the city’s political landscape? Join Jarrett Murphy, Executive Editor of City Limits, as he explores this trend with Paul Mak, President of the Brooklyn Chinese-American Association; Peter Kwong, Professor of Urban Affairs and Planning at Hunter College and Professor of Sociology at CUNY Graduate Center; and Brooklyn City Councilmember Mark Treyger, whose District 47 includes Bensonhurst.
