Must See in NYC: Light Up Chinatown

Updated: Jan 18

Have you seen the lanterns in Lower Manhattan?

After an almost one year hiatus, I returned to NYC and was greeted by 250 violet pink, orange, and gold lanterns hanging above Mott St. located in the heart of Chinatown. Light Up Chinatown is a grassroots initiative with a mission to bring the community together during the pandemic by boosting the confidence of the neighborhood and to remind people that while many businesses have closed, many are still open.
