The team behind the forthcoming China Live (644 and 660 Broadway) understands that it might seem a bit odd to bring an ambitious, multi-level Chinese food-centered retail and restaurant space to an already busy corridor of Chinatown. But they say they don’t want to usurp Chinatown’s culture—they want to preserve, protect and promote it. “We’re trying to respect the past, but also look forward to the future,” said Richard Miyashiro, managing partner and director of operations for China Live. – Hoodline (07.21.15)
