Chinatown is taking up more and more of the area stretching almost to the east shore. There are thousands of restaurants and shops of all sizes, quality and price. Lots of trinket and Knock-off shops - far too many junk souvenir shops. Still an interesting...More

If you love Chinese foods and attire, then you must visit this part of NYC. Very colorful and vibrant specially after evening. A lot of eateries. You can enjoy strolling on Canal Street.

While in NYC, you must see. It's a little community all its own. Cute little shops where kids and grandparents can have a hay day! Bustling!

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

Chinatown is located in Lower Manhattan and is adjacent to Little Italy. I would suggest taking Broadway to Canal Street.

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