Year of the Dragon NYC Style

This is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Calendar.  The Dragon is a symbol of good fortune and intense power. It is a divine beast and a deliverer of good fortune and a master of authority.

Chinese New Year is celebrated in New York City with a parade that winds through Chinatown in lower Manhattan with a spectacle of  colorful dragons marching bands and floats to the delight of the children of all ages  who braved the cold January weather.
