Photo by myself along Canal Street, in Chinatown.
The goings on here in New York pale in contrast to what's going on in Japan.
On Canal Street, it's business as usual. In the daytime, this street is nearly always crowded with people looking for bargains. At night, the street is close to empty.
Canal Street is lined with many jewelry and gift stores. There are some grocery stores, too. Restaurants are generally located on the side streets.
