Chapter 16

Summary Francie likes the new neighborhood because there are several shops nearby, including a delicious bakery, a paint store, and a shop that sells aromatic coffee, teas, and spices. Her favorite, however, is the pawn shop, which has three large golden balls swaying at the door. She is also fascinated by the Chinese laundry; she is especially interested in the owner, a Chinaman who wears long pigtails and speaks little English. She considers the laundry to be the mystery of the Orient in Brooklyn.


Notes

In this chapter, the new neighborhood is described in detail. Francie is fascinated by all the stores, especially the pawn shop and the Chinese laundry, which seem to hold more mystery than the others. Since she is an imaginative and observant child, Francie is always intrigued by anything new and different; she is also able to enjoy the world around her.
