Gateways to Chinatown Design Competition by DOT and Van Alen Institute
Gateways to Chinatown is an initiative seeking innovative proposals to plan, design and construct a symbolic and functional landmark at the nexus of Manhattan's Chinatown and the southern entrance to Little Italy's historic Mulberry and Mott Streets.

The project will provide a new marker for Chinatown, Little Italy, and the surrounding neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan to engender pride of place, foster connectivity and cultural and social identity, and stimulate economic development. Straddling art and architecture, symbolism and function, the new structure and public space aims to become a vibrant place of exchange at the center of one of New York City's most dynamic and historically-rich areas.

This iconic new structure and public space will be located on a triangular traffic island at a key pedestrian node bounded by Canal Street, Baxter Street and Walker Street. Gateways to Chinatown challenges design teams to reimagine the use and layout of this space, create a multifaceted meeting place and information center, and manage the transformative project from design through construction and installation.

To commemorate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, MOCA explores the rich diversity of the residents, businesses, and community groups in and around Chinatown. 

"One of its most interesting historical sites is Doyers Street, also known as ""the Bloody Angle"" where it sharply curves. Who has a masterful understanding of Chinatown community's past and present history? A neighborhood librarian of course! 

Is your child a designer, tinkerer, or creative thinker? Cooper Hewitt Design Camp offers four week-long immersions in the latest advances in design for kids ages six to ten. To kickoff each week, guest designers share their problem-solving strategies and engage campers in fun, real-life design challenges. Campers will receive special access to the museum's permanent collection and enjoy exciting collaborations with campers and staff from the Museum of the City of New York, the Central Park Conservancy Environmental Education Programs and the Guggenheim Museum.

Make your child's summer a fun-filled experience by enrolling in the Children's Summer Day Camp at China Institute in New York City, U.S. Designed and tailored for different age groups ranging from 6 to 12, our camp offers instruction of English language, history, literature and culture in an exciting and interactive environment to students of all proficiency levels. Language instruction is led by experienced English language teachers with exciting historical themes designed to inspire learning, participation and engagement.  


In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, HBO will debut HBO Asian Pacific American Visionaries, a collection of three short films by emerging APA directors, on May 1st across various HBO platforms. Exploring a range of controversial issues, the award-winning shorts examine crime, addiction and family turmoil within the APA community. 


For those of us who are so done with the unicorn drink trend and packed to the brim Bloody Marys; a reprieve is in sight.

A re-boot on the classic iced latte, The Good Sort Cafe in Chinatown has introduced a rainbow iced latte. This Sino-Australian vegan coffee shop is all about simplicity and letting their drink do the talking. While this drink is well on it's way to becoming one of the most Instagrammed drinks in NYC, patrons can be assured that it won't taste strictly of sugar, as this is a matcha superfood latte.

The Boba Room exhibit immerses visitors in 'tapioca and tea'
By Meredith Deliso

The Boba Room, a pop-up opening in a gallery on Bowery, invites visitors to step into a 700-square-foot room filled with large balls and a giant rubber straw, to appear as though they're walking into a massive cup of bubble tea loaded with tapioca.

Help Chinatown Favorite Spicy Village Celebrate Its New T-Shirt Line

Despite being one of the lone neighborhoods in Manhattan to preserve its heritage and verve, Chinatown sometimes seems unaware of its cultural cachet. Whether it's because it has shunned the branding that raises rents or because of the anti-curb appeal of hanging carcasses and crates of seafood along the streets, the hood has maintained status as a lowkey downtown enclave for creatives and families alike.


CHINATOWN, NY - The city is looking to design, fund and build a neighborhood landmark for Chinatown, and this week opened its submissions box for anyone to submit their ideas. (For more New York City news, subscribe to Patch news alerts here.)

Times Square is the most illuminated, walked upon, televised and recognized intersection in New York City. It is a place familiar even to those who have never set foot there-the quintessential symbol of the city that never sleeps. In the center of this kinetic landscape lies a small triangular traffic island known as Duffy Square, home to the statue of Father Francis P. Duffy, a World War I military chaplain who later became rector of Holy Cross Church, just west of Times Square.


Today, six months after the design for Vessel was publicly unveiled, construction on Thomas Heatherwick's otherworldly new urban landmark has officially begun at Hudson Yards on Manhattan's far West Side.
The 150-foot-tall polished steel pavilion will anchor a five-acre public plaza and gardens, designed Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, and will comprise 154 interconnecting flights of stairs, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings.

The concept has been in the works for more than a year, and evolved along the way. For one, the establishment previously went by "Gracias Mama," and also, the menu wasn't always strictly vegan.

There are, of course, many questions about the potential impact of the Trump administration's budget proposal on New York City. One project that is, at least for the moment, moving forward, is the multi-million dollar East River flood protection initiative.

Earlier this week, city officials held a public hearing on the Lower East Side to gather feedback for the latest version of the plan. New York will soon submit an Action Plan Amendment to the federal government that will detail how a Community Development Block Grant awarded in 2014 will be spent. The revised proposal is now available online. You can submit comments through April 24.
