"Chinatown" Chinatown Tip by seagoingJLW

Chinatown, New York City: 17 reviews and 15 photos

by seagoingJLW

Favorite thing: Starting on Canal Street , Chinatown businesses come outside the storefronts and set up on the sidewalks. There are many rare and unusual foods and remedies to be bought.

There are around 300 restaurants along the crowded streets of Chinatown.

Fondest memory: Confucious Plaza comes complete with a statue of Confucious.

There is also a Buddhist Temple to visit. And gift shops galore.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
