Pearl River's artist-in-residence series, ft photographer Louis Chan's acclaimed series of photographs exploring the New York City Chinese immigrant experience. Titled, My Home, exhibition will be on display in Pearl River's mezzanine level, 395 Broadway. The exhibition features a collection of large-scale photographs capturing the often cramped and crowded living spaces of Chinese immigrants that represent culture, identity and psyche in a very personal way. Known for addressing socio-economic issues in his work, Louis began the project in 2011 to chronicle how Chinese immigrants assimilate-or resist assimilation-and how they reconcile their dual Chinese and American identities.

NEW YORK CITY IS THE BEATING HEART OF AMERICA, a montage of cultures and a melting pot of the world. Besides having one of the world's largest harbors, the Big Apple also claims everything from Wall Street and the United Nations to the country's tallest building. There are thousands of movies featuring New York as a setting, and that's not even including the ones Woody Allen has directed. It can easily be overwhelming when you arrive. What do you do? What are the best places to visit if you only have a couple of days?

When you hear the word "masterpiece," you most likely think of some famous painting painted in the 15th or 16th century like the Mona Lisa. So it's always nice to know that artistic masterpieces are being created even today. Take, for example, Chinese artist Zheng Chunhui's breathtaking 12.2-meter-long (over 40 ft) wooden carving - it is a modern masterpiece of wood sculpture.

WOMEN STILL STRUGGLE for equal rights around the world - and considering patriarchy's deep-seated roots in human history, it's no wonder. In China, gender inequality may have its seeds in the Bronze Age more than 2,500 years ago, according to a recent study from Queens College in New York City.

The Parks Department is set to outline its proposal this month to reactivate the onsite public bathroom. In the works for a few months, it's a plan that could curb the excess excrement consistently found around the park.
