In Love in New York: Goodbye Fong Inn Too

Chinatown is a vastly different landscape today from what it was even just a few short years ago, but more significant are the differences from  from 84 years ago when neighborhood-staple Fong Inn Too opened.

In Love in New York: Happy Lunar New Year

There’s a bar in Chinatown, called Whiskey Tavern. As per my First Apartment post, it was a great local watering hole for me during the first few years of my residency in New York City. For the longest time– as I don’t know if this is still true– their slogan was “I miss the old Chinatown.” When you ask any of the owners, Rob, Justin, or George what it means, he would tell you that it  means something different to each patron.
