Chinatown is overrated. Everyone talks it up but most of the shops are the same and few shops were different from one another. It’s not as clean as the rest of New York either. Overall an alright place to visit and great place to eat

Compared to China Town in Manhattan, this is the real deal. The buzz, the people, the food - this isn't fake! If you really want a China Town experience, go to Brooklyn, don't bother with Manhattan!

Chinatown in Brooklyn is a bit small and hidden from those who aren't in the know, or who don't feel like taking a slightly long subway train into Brooklyn, but the visit is well worth the effort.

Getting more crowded, virtually impossible to park... yet a must-see for Sino-enthusiasts. Worth walking through the insane throngs along 8th Avenue to get baked goods at Bakery 88 and Xin Fa, and fresh vegetable/fruit juices and smoothies at TBaar. Lovers of fish have a wide...More

Go to Manhattan for Chinatown, there is a small Chinatown on Avenue U in Brooklyn but it's not the same. The food is really good probably just as good. But it's not Chinatown that you've heard about. Take the train to Canal street for the...More
