February 7th is Chinese New Year and it seems that some of the stores along 8th Avenue are already getting ready. Displaying their wares on the windows and hanging fireworks streams.
The following shots I took at last year's celebration. Chinese New Year is a very colorful all day celebration worth watching. Expect this year's to be even bigger than the celebrations last year and weather permitting to encompass the entire length of 8th Avenue. Bring your cameras boys and girls.

It seems that the building under construction on 8th Avenue and 48th street seems to be proceeding along in it's construction. From the looks of things the building seems to be another art deco version condo much like the ones we have seen on 7th avenue.
The artist's rendering below purports to show what the finished building will look like. The rendering can be seen posted on one of the billboards at the construction site. One has to wonder if the same architect is involved in all these buildings or are they simply copying each other's work.
