We had a good time walking around and did some shopping. The crowd was good. Everyone we encountered was nice.

We've been to many China Towns over the Western world. They are all set up to please the western cultures. Here you can eat reel Chinese food. The only problem is that many of the staff don't speak English

A walk through China Town is quite interesting. It seems to be mainly about food here, and we enjoyed looking at all the strange things for sale.

Quite extensive ethnic neighborhood with lots of choices for food and shopping. Local groceries sell typical Asian fare unknown to local American markets. There’s quite a good mix of Chinese restaurants from southern Cantonese to northern ones. Street decor also reminds the one back in...More

We walked around here quite a bit waiting for places to open. There are lots of shops and restaurants down every street. The small shops were selling your typical goods such as lanterns, charms, eastern clothes, Chinese/Japanese etc bowls, tea pots etc. The place isn't...More

Not exactly what I was expecting. It's definitely a change of scenery, with everything written in Chinese, but it's overall pretty dirty. If you have some time to visit why not, but it would not be on my top list of places to visit in...More

Each time I travel to NYC, I must go to Chinatown. You truly feel as if you're in a different part of the world upon entering Chinatown. Sit down and eat at a restaurant.. enjoy the change of environment!

Hated it! A smelly, dirty, uninviting place that I couldn’t wait to leave. I was hoping to go there, find a great little restaurant and enjoy a Chinese meal. I wouldn’t have eaten there if you’d paid me to. It is a muddle of crowds,...More

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

The best place that I go to is right across the street from Joe's Shanghai restaurant which is Foot Heaven at16 Pell Street. I go there when I pull my back out or need a good foot massage. They are very reasonable too.

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