While ambling along, we happened upon this structure at a local park in the area.  Inside we found people practicing martial arts.

Little Italy, NYCWe weaved back and forth from Chinatown to Little Italy.  This is another great area in the city.  This weekend the streets were closed off for people to walk about freely.  For those into and of the Lost Generation, one could reminisce at one of the various cafes, along Mulberry, whose outdoor seating lined the streets of Little Italy.
