Chinatown Brenkwando (New York)

What better place for the sun to set...I like coming here to be in a different city within the bigger city that already envelops my life. Its a place that smells bad, is grimy, crowded, and unfamiliar. That's what pulls me in.

What better place for the sun to set…I like coming here to be in a different city within the bigger city that already envelops my life. Its a place that smells bad, is grimy, crowded, and unfamiliar. That’s what pulls me in.

The people do their day to day activities – buying fish, herbs, selling trinkets, that have no other purpose other than to make noise and amuse for ten seconds at a time. The small unknown back alleys and downstairs, tucked away massage parlors and karaoke bars – all add more of a sense of mystery to the place for me. On a rainy night, I can’t help but to believe that a scene from Blade Runner is unfolding nearby. This place means many things to me. But more than anything, amidst the dirt, and the stench, it’s also just another beautiful place.
