To celebrate the release of Ann's new book, Chinatown New York: Portraits, Recipes, and Memories, there was a book release party. Attendees included supporters of the book as well as people that the book featured. (CICF was also included in the book.)
This book on Chinatown is one of a series of books about different ethnic neigbhorhoods in NYC. I was impressed with how beautiful the photographs came out. The content of th book was also excellent. It was truly the most up to date and informative book on Chinatown.
This book really did a lot of re-educating for all of Chinatownites. It's funny how many of work in the same community but have never met or talked to each other until the book party. The book talks about different businesses in Chinatown as well as the people who make it up. What I also found interesting was how they also included the different ways in which our families have immigrated to this country.
Collins Design and Ann Volkwein will be soon releasing their new book on NYC's Chinatown.
