Chinatown to GV Walk

On Tuesday I took a long quiet walk from Chinatown to Greenwich Village (home).

On Doyers Street in Chinatown, which is all boarded up, there was a hearse at the end leading a funeral procession.

I sat on a stoop to eat my lunch on Mercer Street. I saw a handful of people on my walk and we all stayed far from each other. I took a few photos of shop windows that I liked.

Downing and Morton Streets are in the Village. I was sad to see this poor plane tree so mistreated. The fence is embedded in its bark on all four sides.

I’m reading a novel, “The Last Chinese Chef” by Nicole Mones. It is illuminating to learn about the philosophy behind the ancient culinary history.¬†Traditional round chopping blocks are mentioned in the story. I edited this image later to hide faces.

We at Dim Sum ate our favorite multi-story Dim Sum house, The Golden Dragon. They have a wide varity to choose from.

I don’t know if there is any significance to the Buddha heads in the tree trunks, just caught my eye.
