Special thanks to Wayne Wong, who documented the Chinatown Senior Citizens' Center Community's performance at the Chinatown Consolidated Benevolent Association on April 30, 2011.

Founded by City Lore and the Municipal Art Society in 1998, Place Matters' mission is to foster the conservation of New York City's historically and culturally significant places. These "places that matter" can be as diverse as local bakeries, hidden gardens, jazz clubs, and historic churches, all of which hold memories and anchor traditions for individuals and communities and help tell the history of the city as a whole.

The Third Annual Place Matters Awards honored six Lower Manhattan sites that hold memories, anchor traditions and keep New York City distinctive.

~ Economy Candy, Lower East Side
~ The Bowery Mission, Bowery
~ The Chinatown Senior Citizens' Center, Chinatown
~ Streit's Matzos, Lower East Side
~ Ear Inn, Tribeca
~ Tenement at 109 Washington Street, Financial District
