Took some photos in Chinatown today. Seems like it expanded more every time I visit. I love this place!

Beautiful!

Old police building is one of New York's unsung gems.

They almost tore it down.

Are there any Italians at all still living in Little Italy?

A far cry from Santorini, but the same great photographer.

I was walking through lower Manhattan yesterday with my camera.
Chinatown is several blocks larger than last time I posted, and more colorful and lively than ever. Away from the touristy end around Canal St., there were times when I was the only non-Asian in sight- awesome!! The dynamism of this place is off the charts. It is, more than ever, like a subway ride to another country.
Here are some pics...

Rarely have I ever seen two bags produce such a stark dichotomy.

Thanks for the captivating pics, Midtown.

Do you happen to remember where you shot this picture MidtownGuy?:

And is this Canal St.?

I would like to know the exact location too.

Ben, you can get a broad idea of the location because of the well known buildings in the shot.

It is looking at the back of the Municipal Building which lines up with the Woolworth Building, The Verizon Building at 375 Pearl Street is at the top left of shot. Good chance to practice your New York map reading Ben.

East Broadway? Probably from the manhattan bridge.

Yes, I figured it was looking down the road at the Municipal Building, just couldn't make out the street. Thanks.

The best Italian restaurant in Manhattan is in Chinatown (IMO). Forlini's, it's on Baxter between Canal and Bayard.

Thank you for those photos!
I really wanted to go watch, but found I couldn't drag my lazy self out of bed.
