Looking for a Bargain, on Canal Street, Chinatown

Canal Street, nyc
Photo by myself on Canal Street and Broadway, in Chinatown.

Transactions do take place on Canal Street after the sun goes down, but not for long. Generally, the stalls pull down their shutters and this street is an absolute ghost town after dark.

All sorts of things are sold on Canal Street: T-shirts, electronics, fragrances, jewelry, bonsai plants, fountains, clothing, appliances, fake Chanel bags....to name a few.


We've been having some suddenly wonderful, warm days. March is usually chilly and temperamental in New York.

People have been sauntering around in shorts and flip flops already. Wednesday's weather is rumored to go into the 60's F (18 degrees Celsius).

Kitty you are a gem, I was about to glance at my converter when you said (18 C) that's def shorts and thongs even in Oz! Looks like you caught that interesting shop just before it was going to pull it's shutters down.
(I wonder if NYC will get one last cold snap!)

Wow, 18º C is freezing winter for Brazilians. :) Specially in my city, Rio de Janeiro, where 40ºC is the average in the summer.
