Chinatown NY Screwed

Chinatown NY. Once a tourist trap in NYC, now is facing tons of issues post 9/11. Not mentioned of course is the overall reaching national economic problems which appeared evident in NYC prior to LA or SF. The stats in the article sound fatal for the once vibrant area. Shops closed, traffic weaned away, tourist buses rerouted, and signs saying to stay away from Lower Manhattan. Granted, you can get the mix tapes, faux fashion items, and just regular fun goods, yet the tourists haven’t been there in the typical mass. The garment district is doomed. Out of it all, maybe an awakening of taking back the area! (NYDailyNews – Chinatown)
