As I mentioned last week in my post about Pearl River Mart, we really only had about five hours in NYC, less the time spent eating lunch and eating dinner. Since my friend Julie is the foodie, she picked the place to eat lunch, which put us in the Chinatown/Soho neighbourhood. It was a beautiful day, and this image just seemed to show a quintessential downtown NYC view.
Terracotta warriors of all sizes and shapes. Gorgeous robes and wall hangings at Pearl River. A beautiful piece of joss paper which cost all of 25¢. It probably measured 12x12 inches. Gold bugs on rice paper from Pearl River. We are very lucky to live just a few hours from NYC and to be able to take advantage of all it has to offer.
We spent the most time in Kam Man, a huge Chinese food/department store, walking along Canal Street, heading up Broadway to Muji and Pearl River and then hunting for a great bistro for a quick supper.
Here are some more pictures from our brief adventure.
