New York Chinatown: Chinatown_Glick_19

Men working outside on the sidewalk at Catherine and Henry St., New York Chinatown, 1982. On the left side a man smoking a cigarette carries a bag of scallops while other men sort through boxes of seefod. Looking down Henry St. toward the Manhattan Bridge.

Catherine and Henry St., New York Chinatown, 1982. 

The corner of Catherine St. and Henry St. (looking toward the east—Manhattan Bridge) right outside the store- depicts workers sorting and moving seafood on the sidewalk. Frankie’s son, Freeman, informed me that the man smoking the cigarette and carrying a bag of scallops was his great uncle, Yee Lam Chan, now deceased. Yee Lam’s son, Tseuk (Joe) Chan, is looking into the box, right center.
