A New York City blogger, Jeremiah Moss, who laments the vanishing landscape of long standing sites of New York City has described the closing of several Chinese laundries. Moss noted that the Greenwich village Chinese laundry of Harry Chong that operated for 60 years no longer exists.
Similarly, Lee’s Laundry in Greenwich Village closed in 2009 after 30 years of operation.
Another New York store, Chin’s Laundry and Dry Cleaning store was slated for sale in 2008.
If you look hard enough, however, you can still find a few Chinese laundries still in business as of 2014 such as the four below, but their days may be numbered so patronize them while you still can.
