Book Description

Nov. 1 2000
Asia in New York City is an in-depth tour of New York's diverse Asian culture and covers all of the Big Apple's Asian neighborhoods, including Chinatown, Little India, Little Tokyo, Koreatown, and Little Manila. This is the ultimate insider's guide to all things Asian, from the hottest new trends to the most mystical traditions. Theme chapters cover such topics as local Asian art, film, food, health, recreation and nightlife, and shopping and fashion, with information on community, education, and spirituality. This fascinating and insightful guide examines both the traditional and contemporary influences of Asian culture and how each has evolved in the fast-paced environment of New York City. "The Asia Society offers refuge from the urban hubbub and a welcome whiff of the far-off East." - New York magazine
