Columbus Park is a park in Chinatown, which means most people there are Chinese. The park is small and has a few swings and slides for children. It also has a building with a toilet, which is handy.

We passed through Columbus Park while walking from WTC to Chinatown/Little Italy. We loved the atmosphere as men and women played traditional games with crowds overlooking them and offering input.

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

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
