NEW YORK, October 24 – The rain didn't discouraged hungry New Yorkers from getting their dumpling fix at the 2009 New York City Dumpling Festival. At Sara Delano Roosevelt Park, massive crowds waited in line for dumplings from many different cultures including Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Malayasian, Italian, Indian, and Polish. The lines were extremely long, but people were determined to get their fill.
