Flushing VS Chinatown

This is an interesting article from the Times that I recently found (although it was published a couple years ago), that talks about the differences in culture, food, and shopping between Chinatown Manhattan, and our beloved Flushing. Pretty cool read. Here's an excerpt:

Where Chinatown is shrouded in history, Flushing is bright and contemporary. The broad, flat cityscape of Queens is spiced up with the shiny metal-and-mirror aesthetic popular in industrial East Asia. "In Chinatown, everything is right in front of you," [the author's friend] said, putting her hand right in front of her face. "In Flushing, you can breathe."

It was very interesting for me to read that blog. Thanx for it. I like such topics and anything connected to them. I would like to read a bit more on that blog soon.
