A mysterious and exotic view of Chinatown

From:  ephemeralnewyork.wordpress.com 


Alluring and unorthodox, Chinatown was already a big tourist attraction for out-of-towners as well as slumming-it city residents in the early 1900s.   

This postcard, dated 1911, really plays it up. The front shows Mott Street; that's the Port Arthur restaurant, opened in 1897. The back of the card reads:  "Here are located the joss houses, the civil offices of the colony and lodging houses and restaurants, the gambling rooms and opium-smoking dens."

Celebrate this Mother's Day With Tickets to Performances by Master Pianist Tian Jiang as he Commemorates Isaac Stern's 1979 China Visit


May 13, 20122 (Mother's Day) - Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall  


In 1979,  American violinist Isaac Stern, preserver of Carnegie Hall, then serving as goodwill ambassador, journeyed from the United States to China.  A year later, under Mr. Stern's sponsorship, a young pianist,  Tian Jiang, became one of the first young musicians to leave China to come to America to study Western classical music.

This May,  33 years after Isaac Stern's China visit, Tian Jiang will perform in Carnegie Hall at Stern Auditorium, commemorating Mr. Stern's memory- a concert for America's youth, to help and inspire them with the power and beauty of classical music -- just as Tian himself was inspired by its power and helped by Isaac Stern.

Tian Jiang will perform at Carnegie Hall on behalf of theFoundation for the Revival of Classical Culture. The concert will jump-start an ambitious project to have hundreds of New York City young people form choruses to perform Handel's Messiah in the 2012-13 season. The choruses will also explore the "musical identity in intention" between the African-American Spiritual and the works of Handel, Bach and others.

The present explosion in performers of Classical music in China is largely the result of the impact of Stern's visit. Now, as with El Sistema in Venezuela, it is time for the same to be done in the United States.


Tian Jiang will perform works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, and his own compositions.  For more information or tickets, please go to:  http://www.ffrocc.org/

China and India: Globalization with Different Paths:" April 11, 3-4 PM, Lecture Hall South, 1 Pace Plaza


With the rapid rise of China and India in the early 21st century, the scale of globalization presents significant challenges for these two countries and the U.S. Today we are exposed to information about China and India on a daily basis.  Stories from China tell of economic growth and governance challenges. Reports from India inform us of grassroots democracy and outsourcing. Both countries employ different developmental strategies: China combines economic openness with a centralized political system, while India has the valve of lively democratic politics, along with a semi-controlled economy.

This Roast Pork Bun Still Reigns
By: Shirley Lew
From: ourchinatown.org

You know you got it good when you bite into a cha sui bow, otherwise known as the roast pork bun. You know you got it even better if it's right out of the oven from Hop Shing Restaurant on 9 Chatham Square.


Hop Shing and their roast pork buns are synonymous. For more than three decades, it's been a known claim among many locals and out-of-towners that these roast pork buns are the best. Although this is an unofficial claim, it's no exaggeration.     

Bakers continuously roll out a little over 500 roast pork buns every weekday morning, but the weekend demand is much more ferocious.  "We make close to 2000 in one weekend day," explains Don Chin. His uncle, Kwon Fong Chin manages the restaurant and the books, but no longer cooks.
