Elected officials come out to march with community members in the parade each year but Mei says that he wishes the community were a little more politically engaged than they are. On a recent visit, we saw a selection of fish heads for sale on a bridge table. A visit to a Chinese supermarket is another treat for anyone new to the neighborhood. Most visitors to the area want to try the Chinatown dim sum restaurants and there are plenty to choose from.
Mei says that the residents are all working hard and long hours and have little time for weekday dining, but on Sundays, dim sum restaurants are packed with families. Park Asia is a popular spot not only for family dim sum get-togethers but also for community events, small weddings and showers. If you're looking for something a bit smaller and more intimate than a dim sum banquet palace, Mei likes the barbecue meat dishes at Lucky Eight, at Eighth Avenue.
There are plenty of tables and on a recent early lunch hour, they were pretty packed. Mei says that there are two bakeries on every block, but this reporter thinks that might be an understatement.
Bakeries where you can get coffee or tea, a pastry, a steamed bun or a sandwich, are everywhere—crowded and noisy and favorites among seniors who want to socialize. New development is everywhere, reports Mei. Chinatown, too, however, is seeing lots of new projects: The Brooklyn Eagle walked through the neighborhood and found a number of them mid-construction.
