Memories of Chinatown
Chinatown in New York City was and is a conclave of immigrant Chinese trying to survive, assimilate and integrate into the surrounding American culture, yet still preserving the culture and customs of their ancestors. Immigrants from China pass through daily; some stay for generations, others flit through in their rush to pursue the American Dream, their passage sending ripples across the flow of time.
We immigrated here, or were born here. We played, attended school, dated, married, gave birth, divorced, re-married, died… in every facet of human existence.
These are our memories of mid 20th Century in NY Chinatown.
