A few subway stops away exists a whole other world. Chinatown. This is one of the things I love about New York. One minute I can be in Chinatown enjoying the Chinese New Year parade and the next minute I can be up to my eyeballs in cannolis in Little Italy.
Each section is so authentic. So true to their own culture. So true that my daughter is convinced the subway car went under the ocean and we were actually IN China.
Here's a few pictures of the parade:
Happy Chinese New Year!
