Since my first trip to the area over 30 years ago, much has changed. It used to be a neighborhood that held Chinese and kept close touch to the culture of the race. it now has a little of that and a lot of dirty looking and feeling streets. Chinese are generally neat people, so I do not get the reason for the lack of effort to keep the streets and vending shops clean. They have taken over the old Little Italy area almost completely. What a shame. I would be concerned in buying food at streetside vendors boothes, or get fresh seafood; maybe just me?

Address: Manhattan, New York City,
Directions: Canal Street stop. From there, proceed by foot through Canal Street and explore the area. Locted Bowery & Church and Canal & Worth boundaries.
