I really enjoyed Daniel Ostrow's book about Manhattans Chinatown. As a child growing up in the city and spending many of my weekends eating and exploring Chinatown, I really appreciated seeing all the original restaurants and comparing them to what is currently there. Hop Kee was one of the restaurants my family would eat at and I enjoyed reading about it's history. The Dragon Parade on New Years was one of my favorite events. What great images of my fondest memories.
Mr. Ostrow's research on the history of Chinatown and how it evolved over 150 years was so detailed and interesting. I felt like I was back in time. I really enjoyed the beautiful original postcards and historical scenery and how the book was laid out. I highly recommend this book .
