shén me?

We all know we're multi-lingual here in New York.  But, the signs just posted in Central Park announcing the new prohibition of smoking in parks that went into effect three days ago had me do a double-take.  English and Spanish, sure.  But, CHINESE?
Talk about globalism - here's a New York City sign, in Mandarin, as described by a UK newspaper in the linked article.

OK, OK, I get the message.  Chinese is the language to learn, not French.  Mais pas pour moi! (I'll leave that to others, merci beaucoup.)
