Routine Trip Turns Fatal as a Man Is Pushed in Front of a Subway Train 

By Robert Stolarik for The New York Times 

Far from the city's major Chinese enclaves, a couple left their Bronx apartment on Sunday headed to Chinatown for breakfast on a crisp fall morning. A few blocks to the D train. A short wait on the platform.

Then, without warning, the husband disappeared beneath the screeching downtown train, pushed to his death, apparently by a stranger, just before 8:45 a.m., the police said.


"Push, push!" his stricken wife screamed, according to witnesses, uttering one of the few English words she knew.


An assailant fled up the stairs and out onto the street.


Nothing was stolen, the police said, nor did the smattering of early Sunday straphangers describe a prolonged confrontation between the victim, Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, and his assailant.


Instead, investigators came to believe as of late Sunday, that the attack was the sort that sows fear in many New York City subway riders: a random, purposeful and fatal shove at the platform's edge by a stranger.

Before Sunday's death in the Bronx, 49 people had been struck and killed by subway trains this year, according to a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, a number that includes suicides as well as accidental falls. But Mr. Kwok's killing was the first time since late 2012 that a rider was deliberately shoved to his death by another.

From Coffeehouses to Banquet Halls Walking Tour
  Chop Suey, 1929, Edward Hopper. Collection of Barney A. Ebsworth.   


Restaurants have played a major role in Chinatown history since the early settlements. The earliest Chinese eateries in New York catered strictly to the needs of Chinatown's turn-of-the-century "bachelor society." Over time, however, Chinatown's restaurant industry would reflect the neighborhood's changing immigrant population and needs. This themed walking tour traces the evolution of eateries in Chinatown, highlighting the ways in which these spaces have both shaped and reflected the community.


Fee: $15/adult, $12/student & senior; $8/MOCA member. Free for children under 5.

Chinatown Biz Group Fed Up With Placard Parkers Hogging Spaces All Day

Stephen Miller

Imagine if your neighborhood's streets were used as an employee parking lot for a nearby office building, and the people in charge of enforcing the rules turned a blind eye, day in and day out, as they ticketed members of the public but ignored lawbreaking by their colleagues.


Well, there's no need to imagine: That's how parking works in Chinatown, and leaders from the Chinatown Partnership Local Development Corporation are fed up after years of abuse.


The Partnership inventoried the neighborhood's parking supply in August, looking at regulations and conditions for the approximately 3,000 on-street parking spaces within the BID's service area, which is roughly bounded by Broome Street, Broadway, Worth Street, and Allen Street [PDF]. During the peak of summer vacation, the BID found that 24.4 percent of all on-street parking spots in that area were taken up by cars with government placards.

Pressing Buttons in the Art World



Amy Li Projects, 166 Mott St., is open Wednesday through Sundays from 12 p.m.-6 p.m. The artwork of Matt Enger is currently on display. 


For 32 years, the He Zhen Snap Button Co. in Chinatown, its storefront cluttered with rivets and snaps, was one of many businesses that catered to the New York garment industry.


Then one day last year, owner He Zhen Li's daughter-28-year-old curator Amy Li-came home from art school and convinced her father to make room in his shop for a makeshift gallery.


In September 2013, Ms. Li got her father's permission to use the space to display her first curated art show, titled "Without Consent" in a riff on displaying art in an unusual place without seeking permission from traditional galleries.


"There are so many assumptions attached to the word 'gallery.' This is just a space where I work as a curator and art dealer," Ms. Li said. She started the gallery to give herself work when she couldn't find a position at a museum or art organization.

"I didn't know anyone who could introduce me to a job opening," she added. "That's why I continue to do this."


The ad hoc space is made up of three short walls, and Ms. Li often uses the shop window to display other artists' work. The gallery and button shop operate under the same hours.

Subway Victim Mourned In Chinatown

By NIU YUE in New York With Contribution by Lu Huiquan


Family and friends of Wai Kuen Kwok, who was shoved off a subway platform and killed by a passing train on Nov 16, remembered the victim Sunday at his funeral in Chinatown.


Around 80 people attended the service at the Wah Wing Sang Funeral Home, which lasted more than three hours. Kwok's wife, Yow Ho Lee,and their two sons, Gary and Billy Kwok, did not comment to reporters. The family requested privacy.


The elder Kwok, 61,a Chinese immigrant, and his wife were headed to Chinatown for breakfast to celebrate Lee's birthday when Kwok was suddenly shoved off the platform and run over by a passing D train at the 167th Street station in the Bronx.


Kevin Darden, 34, was charged with second-degree murder in Kwok's death and is expected back in court Monday. Darden was recorded on surveillance video calmly smoking a cigarette a few blocks away after the incident. He also had later boarded a bus in the area.

A Message From the NYPD Community Affairs


During this difficult time it is important to remind ourselves to be grateful of our democratic process and its principles.  People have an absolute right to their personal beliefs, to voice what they think and assemble to protest peacefully.  The police are sworn to uphold and protect these rights as much as we are to enforce our laws.  


As fellow New Yorkers who care deeply about our city, it's vital that we work to maintain open lines of communication and promote understanding.  We are in this together.  


I have great confidence that we can address difficult issues and overcome the challenges we face.
