Today, I went to the Chinatown Rotary Club. It was, as usual, friendly people and good food. I decided to walk home. I had not walked much east of Chinatown, so I walked over to the river under the Manhattan Bridge. I then tried to stay as much along the East River as I could. This brought be through several housing projects. Some of them were for lower income people, but they were all well kept and very safe. Not what we see in the popular media. Nothing significant happened, but I do recommend just walking around New York. You will never be disappointed.
