Chinese New Year in New York City

Is this a newly discovered Jackson Pollock painting? Not exactly. It’s the street after the Chinese New Year Parade in New York City.

The parade is a fantastic, chaotic and colorful celebration that should be experienced, at least once, for a little bit — at least until the claustrophobia takes over.  Here are a few shots from Chinatown and a previous Chinese New Year.
