"I know it's where all the..." Chinatown Tip by eaglespirit

Chinatown, New York City: 17 reviews and 15 photos


Favorite thing: I know it's where all the tourists go, but if you really want to see the city, go to the Empire State Building -- it's a great view of the city and even the surrounding areas.

Fondest memory: Looking for the Buddhist Temple! On our map it showed a little pic indicating there was a Buddhist Temple in China Town. We searched for HOURS but couldn't find it - the people on the streets didn't even know one existed there! After a while we gave up, and ended up running into one on our way to Battery Park. It was great, the people in there were really nice and let us go inside.
