For the past year, Lucy Yu has been converting a funeral supply shop in Manhattan’s Chinatown into the city’s first Asian American woman-owned bookstore. In a ground floor space on Mulberry Street that faces Columbus Park, Yu built a snug refuge for a community that has been a target of attacks during the pandemic. A turquoise wall framed by string lights showcases works by legendary New York photographer Corky Lee, as well as Japanese woodblock prints. A bar table faces a wall of shelves stacked with thousands of books by Asian and Asian American authors.
