ExploreChinatown Newsletter (7/17/19)
Sunday, July 21, 2019 | 11am to 4pm

Mott Street, Manhattan
(Canal Street to Worth Street)

Join us in Manhattan's Chinatown to celebrate the 29th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act; to instill and reinforce pride among all members of the disability community, their caregivers, family, friends and supporters; to change the public perception of people with disabilities; and to tear down the barriers and boundaries that divide us in order to foster a spirit of unity and collaboration.

Happening for the first time this year, we'll be celebrating 25th Annual Burmese New Year Water Festival too. Also our friends at GrowNYC will be hosting a Stop 'N' Swap, allowing passerbys to bring clean, reusable, portable items such as clothing, housewares, games, books & toys that are no longer needed, and for taking home at no cost.
From 11am to 4pm, visit cultural and information booths throughout Mott (Worth to Pell Street), enjoy games and activities, as well as taste all the delicious foods that Chinatown has to offer everyone.

Stop 'N' Swap

Right now, the plan calls for a soft opening on July 27. They’ll start out with tofu, soy milk, dau fu fa, grass jelly with or without toppings, herbal tea, and bai tang gao rice cakes in both white and brown varieties. Eng is looking forward to rolling out more desserts and some savory snacks in time as well.

The Americans With Disabilities Act, or ADA, which President George H.W. Bush signed into law in 1990, emancipated millions and set a standard for the rest of the world. It meant that, legally, any public place must accommodate anyone who wishes to go there; wherever there’s a stair, there must also be a lift or a ramp.

Mostly known to be a drink comprised of milk tea and tapioca pearls, you can create your own version of the delicious drink with various topping and flavor options. Now a widely loved menu beyond Asian communities, we’ve rounded up a list of the best bubble tea spots in New York, ranging from large chains to new and emerging shops.

Craving hot pot? You're in luck: a new business has opened its doors in the neighborhood. The fresh addition to Chinatown, called Dalongyi Hot Pot, is located at 159 Canal St., Floor 2 Unit E. This new business offers Szechuan cuisine. The spot allows you to pick your soup base, protein and vegetables. Choose between a mild, medium or extra spiciness level as well.
