My very good friend Winnie is currently doing a research project on the Fuzhonese youth of Chinatown. Winnie is doing some pioneering research. Not much has been written on the Fuzhou population because they are considered a more recent immigrant population.
Though NYC’s Chinatown has historically been a Cantonese speaking neighborhood, we have recently seen huge changes in the language and food being served here.
I’ll keep you posted on what her findings are in the near future. If you are a Fuzhounese Youth and you would like to participate, please find more information below:
Recently, my buddy Kendra Lee who is the Executive Director of the GCCA asked if I would chair a committee that helped to bring youth into the Chinatown to patron our businesses and become aware of issues that are going on in our community. How could I pass up the offer? I LOVE Chinatown!
I haven’t personally tried the food there yet but I imagine that the food would be quite comparable.
New Shanghai Kitchen is located at 67 Bayard Street.
