Manhattan s solutions are not right forChina s society
Chinese citizens have deep familyroots and values
Manhattan s solutions are not that ofChina s societyAnd a strong sense of community
The street is a common and vibrantarea where live takes place
Trade and houses have an intimaterelationship
And Chinese society has a specialliking to make life in society
And it has been like this as long asChina s milenary history
These are all part of an intangiblevalue to be preserved
