The hypotheses and the data and conclusions presented are the results of anthropological participant-observed fieldwork undertaken in Spanish Harlem, New York. The Joint Statistical Agreement covered the period between October 1988 and January 1990. I (the principal investigator) lived full-time in the community with my family for all of 1989. In the report I have also drawn on additional fieldwork data that I have been collecting since March of 1985 when I first moved into Spanish Harlem and began fieldwork on street culture.
