New York Chinese New Year Day

February 19 is a red letter day that doesn’t appear on the modern Chinese calendar. But older Chinese don’t need a calendar to tell them when to celebrate their New Year, it’s on February 19. The younger generation prefer to observe the western on January 1. This picture was made in the heart of New York’s Chinatown on New Year’s Day on Feb. 19, 1939. Pell-street, heart of New York Chinatown on February 19, New Year’s day with impressive array of flags adding gaiety to a thoroughfare always bright with cosmopolitan chatter. (AP Photo)
