Window Shopping on Elizabeth Street, Chinatown

Roast Duck, Chinatown
Photo by myself on Elizabeth and Hester Streets, in Chinatown.

The subtle body language says it all.

A couple of visitors peer into a storefront offering roast duck. Keeping with tradition, the Chinese leave the heads of the ducks on.


I wanted to show a photo of the city today without snow. Mark and I are a little tired of the recent weather.

For those of you with snow cravings, check out a series of recent photos on the Times site, here. This series captures how New Yorkers have been enjoying and combatting snow in the city.

Snow, cold, grey. Its difficult during this season to go out. I prefer to stay in front of the fireplace. Not a great desire to get outside.
It's always nice to travel down with my pc in NY with your pretty pictures

Thanks Pierre!

I envy you with your fireplace. We have a dvd of a virtual fireplace we put on sometimes, usually during parties. Sad!

I hear you about the snow Kitty!
I remember the first time I saw a duck hanging in a window like this- it was sometime after I first moved into Manhattan - I was all like, "this is not appetizing!"
