This place is a decent ice cream joint. It's a semi tourist trap, but Chinatown Ice Cream Factory does offer good stuff and a plethora of fun flavors. The relatively low price is its selling point, but you'll want to bring cash.

Don't blink or you will walk right by this little hole in the wall shop. The lychee sorbet is amazing and a must try. Our favorite stop each time we are in NYC. Be brave and try something different! Pricey but homemade with awesome ingredients.

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
