Takin' it to the streets....of Chinatown

video

I posted this video on my Facebook page last year. I had a few hours to kill before heading on over to the NYAFF to see the premiere of Nick Chin's MAGAZINE GAP ROAD, so I headed down to C-town for some dvd/vcd shopping, lunch, and bubble tea. I decided to film a little bit of one of the more touristy areas in C-town; Mott. St. and a bit of Canal St. One of my favorite C-town restaurants, Big Wong's, can be seen briefly in the video on Mott St. The restaurant was also briefly seen in the film NEW YORK, CHINATOWN, a movie that I have mentioned countless times before, beaten like a dead horse, on this blog. The restaurant can be quickly spotted in the film during a shootout scene. If you would like, you can go back and take a look at my original NEW YORK, CHINATOWN post and see how the facade of the restaurant has changed from almost 30 years ago.
