ExploreChinatown Exclusive Deal of the Month

10th Anniversary of September 11 In 

 Red White & Blue

Artist Chee Wang Ng will exhibit, 9/11 Memorial Installation in Red White Blue, at three locations during the month of September to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11th tragedy. Ng's installation cries for the nation's loss by transforming a simple bowl of rice with chopsticks stuck in it vertically, taboo in the Chinese culture and eerily resembling the Twin Towers, sitting on top of a table cloth surrounded by candles representing the US flag, to honor the innocent lives lost. A low murmuring Buddhist prayer of salvation for the dead is heard in chants emanating from under the low circular table.

 

Ng will also be speaking at, We are a Family: Reflections of 9/11 by Chinese New Yorkers, on Thursday, September 22, 2011, from 4:30PM to 7PM, at Pace University (1 Pace Plaza, Student Union, Manhattan). URL: www.aaari.info/11-09-22Pace.htm

 

Installation produced by the Asian American / Asian Research Institute - CUNY

Grandson of one of the original owners, Zhou H. Li, has returned the 456 name to Chinatown, having opened 456 Shanghai Cuisine on Mott Street. Mr. Li, the restaurant's chef and one of its owners, serves outstanding soup dumplings and fried fish, cold noodles and stir-fries. For those who have prematurely mourned Manhattan's Chinatown, or simply declared its primacy lost to the size and variety of the one in Flushing, Queens, 456 is a sign of health.

The monumental former Citizens Saving Bank at the Bowery and Canal Street - portal to Manhattan, gateway to Chinatown and impregnable fortress of thrift is the kind of neighborhood cynosure that just looks like a landmark. But it wasn't until this month.
