Many New Yorkers, Chinese or not, frequently pass through Chinatown to peruse the fresh markets, to eat dim sum, to wander. Of course, these brief visits rarely grant a full understanding of life in everyday Chinatown. EVERYDAY CHINATOWN captures stories of daily neighborhood life (beyond the bubble tea) through displays of Chinatown objects and the narratives associated with them. We collected and recorded these stories through a series of conversations with Chinatown community groups and collaborated with local businesses to display these objects throughout the neighborhood.
