We enjoyed our walk through Chinatown and checking out the shops. We had a terrific lunch at Jing Fong Restaurant, which offers excellent Dim Sum at reasonable prices.

We loved visiting Chinatown. The cultural melting pot was so interesting. We were also able to get some great deals on some shopping we were looking to do.

A walk through China town was an experience. It is like being transported into a new place. This area was very unique. The shops, restaurants, smells are different than most city experiences. I would reccomend a visit if in the area.

Chinatown in New York City is vibrant, interesting and a considerable contrast to most of NYC. There are plenty of eateries that generally look shabby from the outside but are very welcoming and offer quality/authentic meals at budget prices. You can buy almost anything here....More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

There is about a 8 block radius but part of China town extends up the Avenues near the Brooklyn bridge. Most of it is within walking distance. Parking is another concern. Best to park in Little Italy and walk.
