On to Day 2 of New York City week. Today’s focus is the sidewalks of Chinatown. On a recent Saturday I found Chinatown to be bursting at the seams with pedestrians, vendors selling knock-off goods, and trash.

Some sidewalks along Canal Street were so full that a few people skipped the sidewalks altogether and walked on the street.
There were plenty of trash bins. But there were even plentier amounts of trash.
A night fruit market in Chinatown, bordering Little Italy (I think this was Mulberry Street). In the evening, there were far fewer pedestrians, especially once you are more than a few blocks away from the subway station.
