It is said that there are two Chinatowns in NYC; one in Flushing Queens, and the other one in Manhattan. The one in Flushing is where the majority of the Asian population live, and they own most of the business there as well.

But, the original Chinatown in lower Manhattan is where most of Asian goods are sold, and their business go even further: in there you will find everything from a traditional Asian dish to the most famous branded article, specially watches and women handbags like Omega, Rolex, LAUREN, Cole, Lacoste, ALDO, etc. But of course, they are all counterfeited (or at least that's what I been hearing people saying since I moved to NYC a couple of years ago.)

How to get to Chinatown:

Almost every train will take you there. Simply take any Brooklyn bound train that stops at Canal St. station. Very simple! right?

Rain drops! (DSCN0707)

Rain drops! (DSCN0707), originally uploaded by 1D-Photography.
Taken from a 19th fl window in midtown Manhattan! (sorry I'm NOT posting the exact address of this place because of security reasons. Thanks!)

Exif data:

Camera: Nikon Coolpix P7000
Exposure: 0.01 sec (1/103)
Aperture: f/2.8
Focal Length: 6 mm
ISO Speed: 100

I just got this new Nikon P7000, and I'm very exited I did. To me, it is like DSRL mounted on a point-and-shoot body. It has manual settings (I can control the Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, etc.) It also has continuous shooting, as well as Bracketing, and manual focus as well; Oh, and not mention, It also shoots in RAW!
I just did a Firmware upgrade to correct focusing problem and slow RAW processing. It works the way it should be now, perfect!
