Statue in Chinatown

This is a photograph I took in Chinatown looking south and the statue is of a man named Lin Za Xu. I don't know much about him other than he was an officer from the Fujian Province in China. The building in the background is 1 Centre Street, which houses a lot of government offices. It is quite beautiful at night when the top portion is illuminated.

j'adore le quartier de chinatown (surtout le dimanche avec les marchés) et cette statue qui contrasme bien avec le municipal building. (si je me rappelle bien pas loin il y a celle de confucius ?).
Une belle photo pour une belle statue.


I love the neighborhood of chinatown (especially on Sundays with markets) and this statue that contrasme well with the municipal building. (If I remember well not far ago as confucius?).
A beautiful picture for a beautiful statue.

That building in the background is beautiful. The statue is nice too but the background is really nice.

What a great picture, Lori! I know where that guy is and this is a great vantage point that you chose. Did you sample some dim sum on your way there?

Cool photo. I never noticed it before eventhough I'm in Chinatown a lot.
