Best Place To Observe Traditional Chinese Domino Tournaments New York 2002 - COLUMBUS PARK

COLUMBUS PARK is not a place where you sit and read inconspicuously on lazy afternoons. In this cement square located on a quiet tree-lined street in Chinatown, the only noise one can hear is the furious clicking of dominoes and raucous betting cries. The folding tables and chairs that line the center of the park are reserved solely for men, who gather around exchanging and replacing dominoes as other men hover about, presumably wagering on the games. On the outskirts of the park, the women similarly group, money and cards strewn about, engaged in a variation on blackjack. Sit and enjoy the nervous energy and rowdy exclamations of the participants—just be careful not to interrupt the ritual.
