There is, of course, a very strong possibility that the Vietnamese in question are Chinese-Vietnamese. Happy Holidays.

I named it that because it was taken in the Chinatown neighborhood of Manhattan. The signs indicate that actual demographics change faster than the regional labels. My Italian-American family used to live in this part Manhattan when it was Little Italy. You can see how the neighborhoods evolve and overlap here. NYC's ethnic landscape is fascinating. I should have mentioned something about the Vietnamese in the caption. :)

Ethnographic note: the title says Chinatown, two of the signs are in Vietnamese. Is this intentional?
