Chinatown, Brooklyn
(1.8/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • I Love Chinatown. I love the Chinese areas, full of life (sometimes of underworld) (and of crooks). A world apart ", to see, to live and to try

  • First of all is a sector (not very nice so to speak) but full of a culture too interesting that worth getting to know. Trade is something inherent there, you can get almost any product, first check its quality, and be prepared to negotiate with vendors to by most hard that seem to always end up giving a price more favorable.

  • The neighborhood is very traditional and gives an idea of how should be Chinese. There is much to see and places to eat
