Looks like you got "clear" skies.

Haha, it's true.  Very few are wearing masks and overall it's pretty nice. I've been told next month they'll start getting heavy smog.

That Ellis Island museum is truly one of the best I've ever been to. It's great how it's "on location" in that we have an immigration museum right where the immigration occurred as opposed to some building somewhere else. Some cool Cleveland stuff in there too.

Ah Ellis Island -- where many of our last names got butchered forever.

Hard to butcher a four letter name too badly, but my mom's side of the family ended up with two different spellings.

The middle part of that sign does not advertise a Chinese pimp.   #IStandCorrected

I didn't realize how subversive this sign was until I looked at it more closely. The "W" shows fire coming out of a wheel well of a Fung Wah bus, one of those notorious Chinatown "transportation" companies that ran super cheap buses mostly between New York and Boston. As a result of so many safety violations (to put it mildly) it was forced out of business a couple of years ago. :police: I'm going to have to dissect more of this. The dragon in the "I" is the logo of the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, but I don't know the significance of the mortarboard hovering over its head; and the Nom Wah Tea Parlor ("N") is a historic, old-style dim sum restaurant that was refashioned a few years ago and is now trendy.

^ Fung Wah Bus may be no more, but every city now seems to have a few families that own all sorts of different LLCs that operate these crappy buses. I once took one from Cincinnati to NYC for $30, round trip. The actual name of the bus line, and the LLC changes from time to time but the owners are all the same people.

^is this the place? I walk by here all the time. It seems several companies (or is it really one operating under many names?) are located in the same spot. The signage for these places looks so confusing. I wonder how often people end up getting on the wrong bus. Although some of the new ones have more comfortable and spacious waiting rooms.

^ The one I took was a couple blocks over:

You have a ticket that says where you're going, and they are adamant about making sure everyone has a ticket, and that you get off when you're supposed to, so it would probably be tough to actually get on a wrong bus, but certainly easy to wait in line for awhile for the wrong bus.

oh yeah i took these awhile back because i noticed those chinatown bus routes have shifted from I80 to I70 over the past couple years, but i had forgotten about them -- changing of the guard for the ohio chinese population maybe?
