Dr. Sun Yat-sen (Or: Statue in NYC Columbus park)

In April of this year, Roger, Marco and I made a stop in Chinatown after visiting the 9/11 memorial.

This is a statue of Dr. Sun Yat-sen in Columbus Park, New York City. He was the first president of the modern Republic of China.

Two other things I remember about Chinatown: buying tea bags at TenRen (variety sets), as well as buying awesome red bean ice cream at The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. So good, and the portion size for my ice cream cone was a bit on the large size — I got a lot for my money.

  1. I still curse myself for having that milkshake just prior to going to the ice cream place..

    • Just means we need to find an awesome unknown Dutch ice cream place, then 😉

      I’m still amazed you can get a stroopwafel ice cream cone. Though I guess it’s expected.

  2. We have a Dr. Sun Yet- Sen garden in downtown Vancouver. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of this city it is tranquil place to wander. Especially after the tourists leave. Virginia

    • Well, in this case we were tourists, so I was trying to take pictures without being noticed too much!
