While there is no precise count, some experts believe New York is home to as many as 800 languages far more than the 176 spoken by students in the citys public schools or the 138 that residents of Queens, New Yorks most diverse borough, listed on their 2000 census forms.

Were sitting in an endangerment hot spot where we are surrounded by languages that are not going to be around even in 20 or 30 years.
