2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing Jan. 13 2009
By Judy B - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping this book would have lots of detailed photos giving an insight of how Chinatowns in NY evolved over the century, but it did not. I could of gotten more information and pictures about Chinatown NY doing an web search on the internet. Don't be deceive by the cover of this book cause not all photographs in the book look like the photos chosen for the cover. Most of the pictures in the book are not taken from the same angle as the history picture for a easy comparison on what has changed over the century. Some of the history photos are so blurred that you can hardly makeout anything. I also did not like how this book was put together, it would talk about Manhatten's Chinatown and then jump to Queens Chinatown without properly explaning and then go back to talking about Manhatten's Chinatown. If you are not from New York City you would not know that it was talking about two different places. Very disappointing indeed and not enough info. I'm just glad I brought this on Amazon and not pay full price for this book at a bookstore.
3.0 out of 5 stars NYC Chinatown Then & Now Jan. 26 2009
By Donald O. Yee - Published on
Wished there were much more older photos of NY Chinatown during the early 1900s or before. Many older photos were from the 1950s & 1960s.
