"only the Crowd is Chinese"



This article came out only five days after I was born. Lonnie's had already become a mainstay in Chinatown and it was well established as THE meeting place for Chinatown's teens and Chinese American adults.

  1. IT IS SAD TO SAY THAT THE LONNIES SIGN IS NO LONGER IN CHINATOWN. THE NOODLE SHOP WENT UNDER AND THE NEW OWNERS DECIDED TO DO AWAY WITH IT! IT IS SAD TO SEE A PIECE OF OLD CHINATOWN DISSAPEAR!

  2. Comment for OYATOCUN :
    I am not sure who you have been speaking to, but the current owners of PHO 21 which now occupies the space where Lonnie's used to be has nothing to do with the Lonnie's sign. The Lee and Wing family own the sign, and it is being kept safe and sound until a suitable and deserving location is determined by the families.

  3. I'm so glad that sign is being preserved! I'll be watching this blog in the hopes that one day I'll be able to walk into a Lonnie's Coffee Shop. I live in Syracuse, NY, my real name is Lonnie and I married David Chu. We also have an uncle Raymond Chu! So although I am not, myself, of Chinese descent, my husband is. I'm known in Syracuse as a bit of nut for good coffee, and my husband and I have a food blog, chusonchow.com. I also blog to keep our own neighborhood walkable, which means trying to keep the past alive so people know exactly where they are. When these signs disappear, some of our built history goes with them. Then we could be in Peoria or East Ashtabula and wouldn't know the difference.

  4. Are you looking to purchase coffee vans and setup your own business? Once You Purchase a commercial Van, you can start marketing your Mobile Coffee Business. It is very true that most people cannot live without a cup of coffee, especially in the morning before they leave for work.

  7. Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  8. Greetings! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin
    that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!

  11. I've been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

  15. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make
    your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to
    read?
