Passing By on Mott Street, Chinatown

Chinatown, nyc
Photo by myself, somewhere on Mott Street, in Chinatown.

Despite the chilly winds, it was all a-bustle on Mott Street, in Chinatown.

Stalls were up selling festive decorations for Chinese New Year. This year, the New Year falls on February 10th, next weekend.

Ed Koch, the mayor of New York from 1978 to 1989, passed away on Friday. His funeral will be held Monday.

Koch was a feisty and well-loved leader during a turbulent time. If you have time, check out a great video interview with him, now newly released by the New York Times.

The shop ceiling gives a wonderful decor around the picture. A bit like photographing a newsstand with al the papers and magazines around and the seller in the middle. Good shooting point.

My acupuncturist is Chinese and we were just talking about the upcoming celebration. Apparently, 2013 is the Year of the Snake. Not sure what that means...
