 How the New York Hood Once Hailed as 'The New Jewish Homeland' Transformed Into Chinatown
By Brian Schaefer

NEW YORK - When asked at her 2010 confirmation hearing where she had spent Christmas, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan cracked, "You know, like all Jews, I was probably at a Chinese restaurant." The line landed on a bed of laughter. The senators didn't need an explainer - the association has become so well-known and accepted in the United States that they easily got the reference.

 East River Water Samples Test Positive for Carcinogen After Oil Spill
By NY1 News

Con Edison says they have recovered nearly 600 gallons of oil from the East River following a spill earlier this week.
Officials also say samples of the water have tested positive for PCB, a known carcinogen.
The agency is advising people not to eat any fish or shellfish from the river.

Canal Street Food Hall Slides Into Chinatown Next Week With New Nom Wah

The newest food hall in town officially swings open next Monday - including with a brand spanking new fast-casual restaurant from Chinatown heavy-hitter Nom Wah Tea Parlor.
Canal Street Market at 265 Canal Street opened its retail portion in December, and the 12 vendor food hall next door is making its debut next week. Some vendors like wildly popular "artisan" bubble tea shop Boba Guys and East Village ice cream shop Davey's had already been announced, but with the opening, several other vendors with promising resumes have been added, as well.

 Pedestrian-Friendly Barnes Dance Intersections May Return To NYC

A new type of pedestrian-friendly traffic signal may be coming to the city's most dangerous intersections. On Wednesday, the City Council unanimously passed legislation ordering the DOT to study the feasibility of bringing the Barnes Dance crossing system to 25 high-crash intersections throughout the city.

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 

For this year's Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, NBC Asian America asked chefs across the United States to share with us recipes they learned from their home kitchens or that were inspired by family recipes.

From Saigon-style pho and chilled udon to North Indian stuffed okra and a variation on chicken adobo, here are family recipes that chefs have taken inspiration from and adapted.

Before it became one of the city's main tourist attractions, San Francisco's Chinatown was a hard-scrabble place where Chinese immigrants and their children built a community in the face of racist geographic segregation. Artist and Chinatown native Frank Wong pays homage to the neighborhood's Great Depression-era history with his miniature three-dimensional dioramas.

NEW YORK (WABC) --New York City's Small Business Services Department is visiting businesses all over the city, helping them to learn the regulations so they can avoid costly fines when they are just starting out.

By Holly

It's May, and the fourth annual Lower East Side History Month is upon us. 
As in years prior, a month-long series of celebrations is lined up to illuminate the rich and diverse history of the neighborhood. An array of folks comprised of cultural and community groups, small businesses, and residents have organized loads of activities to participate in, from exhibitions to walking tours to public art to festivals. All thanks in part to cofounders FABnyc and Downtown Art.

Thousands Line Up To Apply for Essex Crossing Affordable Housing

CHINATOWN - Since the city first began accepting applications in March for affordable apartments at the sprawling Essex Crossing mega-development, hopeful applicants have been lining up outside the Asian Americans for Equality offices - some as early as 6 a.m. - to solicit language and form-filling assistance from the local nonprofit's small staff.

The J train stop at Chambers St. might have one of the coolest stations in town since it's inside the Beaux-Arts style Manhattan Municipal Building at 1 Centre St.
But thanks to the many government buildings nearby, there's not much to eat right outside. Head two blocks east to spots like these three, all found along the quiet southern tip of Mulberry St. in Chinatown.
