Experience "Everyday Chinatown" artifacts with new eyes and ears! Artful displays of everyday artifacts are paired with audio stories accessible through your phone. Dial in on your cell phone to listen in on our community members as they share stories about common Chinatown household items in Cantonese, English & Mandarin. Window displays of these artifacts are hosted by several Chinatown businesses from May 31st through July 1st. This project of cultural translation, self-representation, and inter-generational exchange is funded by the Citizen's Committee for NYC.

This Friday, join us at Pearl River Mart for a small reception and a guided tour of the project sites.
