"China Town" Chinatown Tip by darthmilmo

Chinatown, New York City: 105 reviews and 139 photos


As China Towns go, New York City's China town doesn't have the traditional buildings one has come up to expect from a Chinatown like the one in Shanghai or San Francisco. However, it is one of the most interesting spots in Manhattan. You can find amazing deals on anything from a decent $4 meal to a pirated software or movie. I really liked ending my days in China town to enjoy a delicious and inexpensive meal. Just take the Canal Street exit on metro lines 4, 5, or 6 and walk around to find the place of your liking :).
