Ticketing pedestrians for “loitering” has been illegal in New York state since 1983. The Black and Latino residents of Corona, Queens who are the victims of racial profiling by police don’t know that. This “Legal Waiting Zone” is based on my interviews with people on Roosevelt Ave. and is an effort to help raise consciousness about the issue.
