DVDs five dollars.
On Canal Street in Chinatown you can get first run movies on DVD. The quality, I imagine, is uneven. Last week, Li-T watched as the police made a bust. Women ran, pushing their carts in front of them. The police watched over their seizures. Tourists, thinking the DVDs were up for grabs, tried to steal them. The cops stared them down.
This weekend, some women have their DVDs stashed in black plastic garbage bags set upon cardboard boxes, like the men selling fake Rolex watches do. Tourists continued to crowd around them.
