Oｈ ! My God Story
The light and the shadow of New York
New York is a town where you can find many gorgeous shops.
You must surely think that way.
But you will find that it is not always true once you get here.
I suggest that you take a tour on an alley
from a main street of
many gorgeous shops.
You will find many down-to-earth general stores
as opposed to gorgeous shops.
This was one of the things that surprised me when I came to New York.
Most of these general stores are owned by immigrants.
They are South American, Middle Eastern,
South East Asian, Chinese
and Korean people.
The flashy and bright side and the poor and shabby side,
New York is a mixture of
both yin and yang.
