Chinatown is one of the best places to visit in New York. If your lucky, your visit will coincide with the celebration of the Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the Serpent. According the the Chinese Zodiac, personality traits of those born under the snake’s auspices include intelligence, gracefulness, and materialism. They are excellent problem-solvers and thrive under tight deadlines. They also are excellent seducers and have no problem attracting others. Sounds like the cast of “Madmen.”
I attended this year’s Lunar Parade and spoke with Danielle Tin, Marketing Consultant for the Better Chinatown Society. The Society is dedicated to help everyone, visitors and New Yorker’s alike, in discovering all the wonders of Chinatown.
