Chinatowns (downtown NYC and Flushing)

Flushing, Queens. Intersection of Roosevelt and Main/

Flushing. New apt/office combo building. A marriage of pagoda moderne and commercial modernism.

Fantastic condo/office block topping ground floor shops near Flushing library.

Flushing Mall. Two-story, warehouse-like structure with large food court. Strange awning, meant to mimic upturned eaves?

Chinatown intersecting with Lower East Side

Shopfront temple and one of the many bus companies.

Must be an association building, hence the roof architectural detail and shrine on the top floor with a giant gilded Buddha statue.
