Spring in New York City Part 1

April 9, 2015

New York is one of my favorite cities in America, especially in the spring. The amount of diversity in the city is nothing I have ever seen before. Los Angeles and San Francisco have ethnic enclaves for food, culture, and entertainment, but New York blows both of them out of the water.

We took the 7 train from Manhattan and rode it all the way to the end of the line in Queens. When we got out of the subway, it didn’t look anything like the place we started from. Manhattan can be a bit posh and put together, Flushing was the opposite, but very charming and very exciting. Visiting Flushing, New York was almost like visiting another country. The buildings were old, the signs were only in Chinese, and the food was amazingly authentic and real. We stopped by at a small hole in the wall restaurant that had 6 small tables and a husband and wife team that made hand pulled noodles and handmade dumplings/wontons. The place is called White Bear for those interested.

We then stopped by to get real Chinese crepes. After seeing the video below on Youtube, I made it my mission to try one of these delectable street treats. The lady that made it was really sweet and she offered me extra hot sauce, which I gladly accepted. I didn’t get the name of the place, but I will make an update when I go back later this week.
