I’m inclined to believe that just about every city (or at least every big city) has it’s own Chinatown but to me the one in New York City will always be my favorite as it was the first one I ever visited. Back then I went on a tour of NYC and only saw maybe two blocks of Chinatown which barely scratched the surface of what the area holds.
A lot of cross walking going on
It is a crowded area but not so much that you can’t get around or stop and look at the stands and stores with all of their wares to be purchased; some I recognized, some I didn’t and some still moving! That amazed me when I saw this one guy unloading a bunch of crab that were waving their claws about.
Fresh and crabby
I’m so glad I had my photo friend take me on the tour because on my own I may have gotten a bit lost and would’ve missed so many things. I think maybe this guy noticed us with our cameras.
A popular organic market
There were so many places to buy food to cook or people getting ready to do the days cooking and so many colorful sights, sounds and smells to take in as we walked through Chinatown.
Five gallon cans of cooking oil
A bit of Chinatown’s bloody history next.
