Chinatown, Brooklyn

(1.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Chinatown, Manhattan is a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City, bordering the Lower East Side to its east, Little Italy to its north, Civic Center to its south, and Tribeca to its west. Chinatown is home to the largest enclave of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere. With an estimated population of 90,000 to 100,000 people, Manhattan's Chinatown is also one of the oldest ethnic Chinese enclaves outside of China. The Manhattan Chinatown is one of nine Chinatown neighborhoods in New York City, as well as one of twelve in the New York metropolitan area, which contains the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia, enumerating an estimated 819,527 uniracial individuals as of 2014. Historically it was primarily populated by Cantonese speakers. However, in the 1980s-90s, large numbers of Min Dong-speaking immigrants also arrived. As many Min Dong / Fuzhounese and Cantonese speakers now speak Mandarin—the official dialect of Chinese—in addition to their native dialects, this made it more important for Chinatown residents to learn and speak Mandarin.

  • Neighborhood alive and very interesting! Full of good restaurants and truly Chinese. But attention! If you listen for a label that has outside of restaurants (usually in the window) where you can see his classification. He is usually assessed by cleaning, inclusive! Give preference to those that contain the letter a!

  • If one is curious you have in few blocks many interesting places to spend some time to amaze is a different to the Western culture. Each business invites you to stop and look in in some cases. Or that speak of the markets where they sell live crabs, lobsters, etc. to take and eat. Interesting Columbus Park where you can see people playing indigenous instruments from China, others playing cards for money, etc. My recommendation is to walk all the streets of the neighborhood.

  • After visiting the point in Brooklyn, we walked to chinatown. Face many souvenirs of NY for a super cool price. Many fruits and fish too. I bought some strawberries super cheap over there. Location and kind of ugly, more fun for the local culture. You've got some Chinese women that are down the street trying to sell replicas of scholarship. kkkk
