"Now that's a Chinatown!" Chinatown Tip by Jefie
Chinatown, New York City: 105 reviews and 139 photos
I always tell people that Montreal doesn't have a Chinatown, it has a Chinastreet. But New York City's Chinatown definitely deserves its title - even if people will generally point you in the direction of Mott and Canal St., with over 200,000 Chinese Americans living in Manhattan, NYC's Chinatown now covers most of the Lower East Side and has become North America's biggest Chinatown. While it was fun to walk through the less busy streets and try to pretend for a while that I'd traveled to another continent, Canal Street soon brought me back to reality. That's where most of the shops that sell cheap sunglasses, perfumes and what not are located, and the place was just swarming with people so we quickly moved on to another neighborhood, but not before having stopped by McDonald's to see what the menu looked like in Mandarin!
Address: Manhattan, New York City,
Directions: The oldest part of Chinatown is located at the corner of Mott and Canal St.
