    Historical Views of Mott Street, Chinatown, New York City

    Got to thinking about how Chinatown has evolved over the decades after my recent visit to MOCA.

    Great pictures and reminders of the past. Was just in the neighborhood yesterday for an early birthday dim sum brunch. Thanks Mark for sharing. And for those who have not been to MOCA - take time to visit and get more deeply immersed in Asian culture and history here in America.

  2. I write as an Asian, with all the pent-up emotions of my people. What I say will annoy many people who prefer the more conventional myths brought back by writers on the Orient. All I can say is that I try to tell the truth. Truth, like surgery, may hurt, but it cures.

  3. A great story, even in the backdrop of WWII and the anti-Asian sentiment that was prevalent in America during the time, particularly against Japanese.  For all the great things that FDR did for this country, I’m still surprised at how he (and the Supreme Court) allowed this to happen.  In any event, I guess this lends creedence to the belief that the NY Knicks were indeed forward thinking even a generation or two ago before the current Lin-sanity craze.  There seem to be a few parallels between Misaka and Lin by the way: humble, hard-working, importance of family.
