Local restaurants in the New York's Chinatown has been devastated with the restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus. Many are closed temporarily and others that are open will probably close soon. Hopes are that they will reopen when the virus subsides. In the meantime, you can help some of those that are still open for take-out. Some suggestions are:
NB WING WONG - 42 Bowery, 646-490-7468 - BBQ roast pork, roast duck, soy sauce chicken and wonton noodle soups are just some of the specialties.
HOP SHING - 9 Chatham Square, 212-267-0220 - Roast pork buns and dim sum are the specialties of this long time staple of Chinatown (over 30+ years). Rice dishes and noodle dishes are also extremely popular here.
SUN SAI GAI - 220 Canal Street, 212-964-7256 - Yet another long term favorite of many in the Chinatown area. BBQ specialties, dim sum, rice and noodle dishes are all delicious at this restaurant.
SHANGHAI 21 - 21 Mott Street, 212-766-6311 - Steamed tiny buns are the best here. Once you try it, you'll be back. If you like Shanghai food this is the place to go. The stir fry noodles are always delectable.
OK 218 - 218 Grand Street, 212-233-6039 - another local favorite that serves delicious Chinese BBQ.
JUST SOME OF THE CHOICES YOU STILL HAVE DURING THE CORONAVIRUS.
" Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve
" Wash your hands regularly
" Avoid touching your face
" Avoid close contact with people who are sick
" Get your flu shot - it s never too late
" Stay home if you re feeling sick. Call your doctor and let them know your symptoms and travel history.
Cancellation of the tournament is not something I like to do. But it is necessary at this stage because we need to help to slow the spreading of this disease. I would feel awful if one of our participants unknowingly contracted COVID-19 this weekend and subsequently spread it to family members (brothers/sisters, parents and especially grandparents who are most at risk). By helping to slow the spread of this disease, it buys time for medical experts to develop interventions and possibly vaccines. It also buys time for seasonal weather change, as warm weather may reduce the transmission of this disease.
All we can do is take it day by day as this pandemic is not something that we have faced before. News changes daily. I urge everyone to listen to FACTS from experts in the medical and health industry, and local and state government leaders.

ASIAN HOOPS - ALL ABOUT FUN
2/25/17 - Asian basketball is all about fun and nowhere was it ore evident than at the NACBA 2017 Pre Nationals at Competitive Edge Sports - King of Prussia, PA. Forty-four teams from the east coast and Canada came to play. Teams from Toronto, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York were well represented in addition to all the ethnic groups - Filipino, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Burmese, Malaysian, Tibetan, just to name a few. But it was the youths participating in the 11u and 13u divisions that put a smile on your face as you watch them go up and down the court with so much energy and passion. Keep working hard.
The evening was electric as over 450 alumni, friends and family members celebrated the 30th anniversary of the New York Rockits Athletes In Action organization. Early on, members welcomed New York Knicks legend, John Starks who dropped by to sign autographs and take pictures courtesy of founder, Leo Hirata. The evening continued on with special presentations to Richard "Quan" Wong, Denny Lee and NYC Sabres/NY Falcons founder, Tom Law. Throughout the evening, commemorative T-shirts were handed out to members and raffle prizes were offered to those lucky winners.
Special thanks to all the sponsors, donators, contributors for their generosity. Also, thanks to all the community organizations for attending and celebrating with us.
Nice seeing everyone. See you all again in five years!!!
