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.
