I was disappointed that there was no historical marker about Five Points. This was the terrible slum area that was shown in the film "Gangs of New York". The streets that joined at the Five Points came together at Columbus Park. The park itself is rather dirty, but interesting. I didn't see any rats.

Columbus Park is where the area's Chinese community go to relax and socialise. At the time of my visit, there were several groups gathered around tables where lively board games were taking place. The spectators eagerly voice their suggestions on what move should be made next, making it an interesting game to watch - even without knowing what the rules... More

This is a small park in Manhattan, NY that is in the center of iconic neighborhoods like Chinatown and Little Italy. It's also nearby City Hall.

If you are visiting Chinatown and wanted to sit for a while, enjoy(you dont have a choice) asian street performances or just stare at hundreds of small ticket gamblers, chinese checker players - then this is the place. Nothing special about this place and nothing bad either..

We walked through this park in New York City's Chinatown, stopping periodically to watch the many mainly older Asian people talking, playing cards and just generally socializing on a warm Summer afternoon. I recommend it highly, especially if you live in a place where there are few Asians, just to see another part of the diversity that makes up this... More

Beautiful little oasis in the city. People playing mah jong, chess, or backgammon, even in 8 degree weather. Across from Hotel Mulberry. Not far from Little Italy

I loved listening to all of the musicians and watching the locals play cards and other games. Lots of seating and shade. It really was the highlight of my visit to Chinatown.

We went to the park at 8 o'clock at night during the summer thought it was a nice place to sit and take a break. There were local people all around having picnics and playing checkers. The park was also infested with rats. This was my second trip to New York City and had never seen a rat before. There... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
