Voices features highlights

Voices That Must Be Heard ran a great article last week on the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, one of my favorite places in the city. It’s apparently 25 years old, and has some fantastic stories. The writer of the article (also the translator, an unusual arrangement for Voices) is one of the best who shows up in Voices regularly; she writes with lively style and structures her stories well.

I meant to link to other recent Voices articles, and I think I forgot: one on a guy who hired a woman to pretend she was an Orthodox Jew to buy a “Frankenfish” from a Chinatown store for his museum; and another on Julio, the guy who dances salsa with a life-size doll in subway stations. (The latter, oddly enough, is from a Polish newspaper.)

No avoiding it: I’m more interested in features than in hard news.

    I’m not sure why, but Queens patriotism forces me to point out the Lemon Ice King of Corona, which has been around since the forties. It’s almost the only place I’ve found that only Queens people know. But then, we just recently established (in this very space) that your frozen-treat taste is not the same as mine.

    My frozen-treat-related *musical* taste isn’t the same as yours 😉 although if I recall you also go further with bubble tea than I do.
