Anything you can think of in terms of souvenirs, sales and food, you can find there. if you are lucky you can get "designer" items at a great price.

Always a great place to visit. Make it down to 17 Mott St and eat at Wo Hop's. Best chinese food ever!

It feels like you are walking in a different century and culture when walking down the busy sidewalks of Chinatown in New York City. There are excellent family run Chinese restaurants and small shops with all kinds of unusual items in the windows.

My bus stop was there and it was confusing to me, as everything was written in Chinese. Anyway, it is the best place to bu cheap souvenirs.

Busy with lots of the same souvenir shops and whisperers selling knock offs, good to see the fake stuff and haggle. Found a yummy shanghai restaurant cheap clean and lots of tourists.

Took an afternoon walk with my family through chinatown. The place was bustling and a lot of chinese people, as should be in a place called chinatown. Nice market and a lot of good vibes.

This Chinatown is in Lower East Side Manhattan, not Brooklyn. Regardless, this is well worth some of your valuable NYC time to wander and take in the hustle and bustle. Perhaps combine with a trip to the Tenement museum, Russ & Daughters, there's many options so close.

I live not too far from what I call the little chinatown, as appose to the chinatown of Manhattan. Although the chinatown is not that small! It runs from approximately 60th St to 40th, if not further. On 7th and 8th Aves. You can find everything there. Stores and fruits, vegetables and restaurants, and so much more.
