Bei Shun Community

Bei Shun Community
When walking toward the Flower Bird Fish and Bug Market from Fuchengmen Subway station you will walk past the Bei Shun community on your right.

This hutong area has quite a large exercise park with many of the colourful metal exercise machines found in many exercise parks around China. Feel free to join in and exercise on any of the available machines. Bei Shun Community
Something not so commonly seen these days are the beautifully decorated blackboards or chalk boards with a lot of Chinese characters on the board. Those photographed are giving advice to the Bei Shun community about health issues. From time to time these chalk boards may be found in hutong communities outside police stations with various notices for the local community.

In our digital age it is a delight to see these meticulous chalk drawings decorating such signs.
