From us at triscribe: happy Chinese New Year! (or Lunar New Year; or whatever you celebrate: it is something to celebrate).
Time Out NY has some listings of the events in town. Here’s a link to Time Out NY’s Chinatown guide; it’s pretty decent, I daresay.
New York Public Library has a nice tumblr post on the Lunar New Year, and noted that the Chatham Square branch has a unique oral history event for the Chinese New Year.
A lot of stuff going on, including… um, that thing called the Super Bowl. But, whatever it is, have fun!
