Once Upon a Time in America: Then and NowS

Ming Hui is a visiting poetry scholar from Beijing. He has been in New York City for almost a year translating Allen Ginsberg poetry into Mandarin, and he is obsessed with the 1984 film Once Upon A Time In America, so much so, that he has put together a series of images comparing scenes from the film, with the locations as they are now.
