We just happened to be visiting at Chinese New Year, which was fun but crowded! There is so much to do in Chinatown, from street vendors selling fresh produce and flowers, to authentic (of course) Chinese food served from carts pushed through the restaurant, to...More

Must admit i was a bit disappointed. I think china town in san francisco is a bigger bombardement of your senses. Maybe china town in NYC is more spread out?

The Chinatown in New York City is an awful place to be. Although it has some benefits like cheap food and stores.

Still, you can buy fresh seafood, vegetables and Asian delicacies right on the street. Chinatown has greatly expanded over the years, and is very crowded.

We really enjoyed walking through Chinatown! It is very cool.! We did not stop and eat here because we're on our way to Little Italy. They had lots of places to eat as well. And also lots of shopping!

We enjoyed walking through China Town. The difference in cultures is very clear and good to experience. Be prepared for the street hawkers; they can be much in your personal space. The markets and food vendors were a visual experience as well.

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

Yes, it's worth a visit if you're going to be in Manhattan; but I wouldn't make it a priority.
