It's the eye of the tiger......I mean the Year of the Tiger

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!

Look at the sun! Lovely, lovely photos. My daughter and son-in-law are moving at the end of July, and I am looking forward to spending LOTS of time soaking up the neighborhoods.

Thanks nickerdoodle! I took those with my Nikon D50. I knew there were going to be too many picture opportunities to try and get good shots with my iphone!

Hi,

Found your blog through apartmenttherapy, I think. Anyway, love your blog. I live in the Boston area so not too far from NYC. But I love the city and try to visit it when I can with my family. I love the fact that you just uprooted your whole family to the city and have embraced it.
