Thanks to Quilian for helping with the photography!
Missed taking a picture of it earlier, but all the elderly residents of Chinatown who came also immediately stormed the periodicals section, pulled out all the chairs and the newspapers and started reading. It was really cool!
Winding down...for the first hour or so there were about 200 people
