"Hectic!" Chinatown Tip by clareabee

Chinatown, New York City: 105 reviews and 139 photos

by clareabee

We happened upon China town purely by accident. This place is mental! so busy and buzzing but I have to say rather overwhelming for me as I couldn't make rhyme nor reason of the streets around here (maybe I had a rubbish map, or maybe my map reading skills are not up to scratch!)

This place has a large chinese community and there are many restaurants and stores selling supplies. you have to go as it is so different to other parts of new york - but next time I go I will be getting a guide who knows their way around!

Address: Manhattan, New York City,
Directions: Canal Street stop. From there, proceed by foot through Canal Street and explore the area.
