NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: Located in the Manhattan borough of New York City, Chinatown NYC contains one of the largest concentrations of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere. The area, also one of the first ethnic enclaves in the United States, is known for its authentic Chinese restaurants, specialty shops, and markets. Wondering what to do in Chinatown NYC? Read below to find out!

Why We Go: Chinatown NYC is mostly comprised of tenement buildings, some of which are almost 100 years old. The area also features a diverse selection of Chinese restaurants, including ones that serve Shanghais, Taiwanese, Pekingese, Cantonese, and Hongkonger cuisines. With so many great restaurants, it's often difficult to decide where to eat in Chinatown NYC.

  • Food: Most people go to Chinatown in NYC for the countless authentic New York Chinese restaurants. However, the restaurants, specialty shops, and markets are so numerous that the casual NY traveler may be overwhelmed; for this reason, we recommend touring Chinatown NYC with a food tour group or an experienced guide who can direct you to the best Chinese restaurants in NYC.
  • Landmarks: In addition to its restaurants, Chinatown NYC is known for its landmarks. A National Historic District since 2010, Chinatown NYC is home to the statues of Confucious and Lin Zexu, also known as Commissioner Lin, the Fuzhou-based Chinese official who opposed the opium trade.
  • Shops: There are plenty of good deals to be had in Chinatown NYC. Street vendors and specialty shops sell everything from watches and handbags to NYC souvenirs. Be sure to set aside at least an hour or two to explore the stores in Chinatown NYC.

Inside Knowledge: Unlike many other ethnic neighborhoods in NYC, Chinatown NYC is both a residential area and a commercial area. The population is estimated at 90,000 to 100,000. In 2010, Chinatown NYC and Little Italy were listed as a single historic district in the National Register of Historic Places. And just where is Chinatown in NYC? It's right next to Tribeca and Manhattan's Financial District.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Keep the Kids Close: Chinatown NYC is a colorful, chaotic neighborhood of shouting street vendors and crowded markets. Kids are easily distracted by all the sights and sounds. Be sure to keep them close, so they don't get lost.
  • Do Bring Cash: If you plan on purchasing anything in Chinatown NYC, be sure to bring cash, as most vendors do not accept credit cards. Just be sure not to bring too much. Protect your wallet at all times.
  • Don't Forget a Guidebook: Chinatown NYC is one of the first ethnic neighborhoods in the United States. It has a rich and fascinating history. When you visit the neighborhood, be sure to bring a guidebook with you that can illuminate the struggles of this vibrant NYC community. Also, if you bring a guidebook, you'll have no trouble finding things to do in Chinatown NYC.
  • Don't Miss a Bargain: Chinatown NYC is known for its bargains. If you visit any of the street vendors, don't take the price they offer you; haggle a bit, and get the price you want. If they refuse, walk away. Chances are they'll follow you and offer you the deal you want.
