Oral History by Think!Chinatown
The ‘Chinatown Shopping’ video series by Think!Chinatown celebrates the diversity of the Chinese diaspora found in Manhattan’s Chinatown through the lens of everyday kitchen ingredients. In this three-episode series, each video features a Chinatown aunty or uncle who will take us along on their typical grocery shopping experience in the neighborhood. They will explain to us what they buy at each location and how these products are reflective of their regional background. Each person takes us through the familiar streets of Chinatown, but shows us a slightly different culinary side.
The mission of this Think!Chinatown series is to highlight Chinatown’s small businesses and locally made delicacies. As such this is supported by the Department of Small Business Services as part of the All In NYC campaign.
