We like to visit and eat in Chinatown in Manhattan, New York City. The multi-floored  Golden Unicorn at 18 East Broadway has some of the best Dim Sum. When we go there we take a number and sit and wait in a hidden corner by a tattoo shop. Sometimes we dine less expensively at the tiny Tasty Hand Pulled Noodle place at 1 Doyers Street.

Years ago fireworks were allowed in Chinatown the noise and confetti was fun. The dead sparrow and bottle was there. I didn’t pose them or know how the sparrow died.

There is a marvelous almost hidden Chinese Market under the Manhattan Bridge. The entrance is between the arches. The trains roar overhead as you enter and inside is a colorful pandemonium. There is a huge variety of things for sale.

As we left the market on Saturday I saw this curious site in the Sophie Irene Loeb Playground. The old man was heating his feet on a fire he made.

We discovered a street market on Christie Street, parallel to the bridge entry ramp. The prices are amazingly low. A few of the stalls had long lines.

To tell the story I used photos spanning from 2004 until now.

    I very much enjoyed this story you told, Sherry–a full picture of the goings-on in NYC’s Chinatown. I think the market under the Manhattan Bridge looks amazing, and I liked that you showed the building under the bridge.
