Quote from Wikipedia about origins of New York City's Chinatown:

"Faced with increasing discrimination and new laws which prevented participation in many occupations on the West Coast, some Chinese immigrants moved to the East Coast cities in search of employment. Early businesses in these cities included hand laundries and restaurants. Chinatown started on Mott Street, Park, Pell and Doyers streets, east of the notorious Five Points district.

The early days of Chinatown were dominated by Chinese "tongs" (now sometimes rendered neutrally as "associations"), which were a mixture of clan associations, landsman's associations, political alliances (Kuomintang vs Communist Party of China) and (more secretly) crime syndicates. The associations started to give protection from harassment due to anti-Chinese racism. Each of these associations was aligned with a street gang. The associations were a source of assistance to new immigrants - giving out loans, aiding in starting business, and so forth."
-Wikipedia Chinatown Manhattan

"No Dogs Allowed" sign in park in Chinatown. I made a jesting reference to the infamous sign that once hung at the gates of a park in Old Shanghai that read "No Dogs or Chinese People."

Foreign author at Brooklyn Book Festival who could hardly read his own book. I must love a writer who cannot even read his own writing.

Indian author Manil Suri doing a Bollywood dance at the Brooklyn Book Festival. This was the high point of the show, and it made a cracked smile come to my cynical lips.

Manil Suri, the author of The Age of Shiva and The Death of Vishnu performing a Bollywood number to perfection at the Brooklyn Book Festival. This was seriously good stuff. Hannah Kates berated me earlier in the day for saying that I judge books by the author photos, but after watching Manil Suri do his dance masquerading as an Indian woman I think we are both going to read his books.
