Mini ethnogorphy

To collect qualitative data, you must interview at least three people who live or work in your neighborhood who are willing to express their opinions about the cultural/social/economic changes happened in your neighborhood during the last ten/fifteen/twenty years. You may interview just about anyone in the neighborhood about this topic (that is, how your neighborhood changed from every viewpoint), including next-door neighbors, your friendly neighbor the Spiderman, family members, postal workers, grocery store clerks, the gossipy old lady out her window all day, your local beat cop, school crossing guards, local officials, and so on. Your task, then, is to collect information from them and present their point of view, accompanied by your analysis. (Note: while you are free to interview anyone from your neighborhood, writing up findings from the qualitative interviews is often easier when the people that you have interviewed do not share the same opinions about these topics). In writing about the people that you interviewed for your paper, you must use pseudonyms, that is, you may not use peoples real names or describe them in such a way that anyone who reads your paper will be able to identify them. Even if you interview someone in a unique and identifiable role, such as the borough president, or the captain of your police precinct, or your mother, and it would be virtually impossible to completely disguise his or her identity, you should still assign a fake name for this project.
Collecting Observational Data:
Since this is a paper about your neighborhood, your own observations of local conditions and your observations about the people that you interviewed for the research are important sources of data that will help readers better understand the quantitative and qualitative data you collect.
Your relationship with the interviewed person (family/friend/coworker/neighbor/stranger) may help indicate the depth or shallowness of the rapport you may share, and help you judge the reliability and validity of the collected data. Your own observations should be used to write a description of your neighborhood that will help the reader understand the attitudes, orientations and opinions expressed by the people that you interview for the study. But the paper cannot be primarily autobiographical in nature.
The paper will be basically based on semi-structured interviews (or open-ended) questions, which ask respondents to answer in their own words. Simply stated, semi structured questions ask what?, why? and how (For example: how did my neighborhood change economically? Did it get richer, poorer etc.). Semi structured questioning allows participants to express their point of view and to describe situations, events, and their experiences and are especially valuable when little is known about the issue under investigation. You can tape-record the interview if you wish (well, its recommended). Your final work will be a 2,500-word paper 
About Covid-19: due to the current crisis, you can make the interviews by phone, and choose friends and family members. The actual purpose of this mini-ethnography is to have you do some anthropological work, to gather some fieldwork experience.
