Tips from locals
About a 10-15 minute walk, you can find great restaurants for dim sum or dinner. I love just walking around Chinatown and buying fresh produce and food to bring home.
Enjoy some of the best Chinese cuisines in the city, old-school restaurants and shops delight those looking for an escape from the perfect Manhattan grid.
Great area with authentic Asian cuisine. We love the "shopping adventure" of Canal Street. Many "knock off" high end brands can be found here. But for first timers, you may be better off not going solo, and don't feel bad about saying "No" you will could encounter some very forceful vedors.
Chinese and other Asian restaurants and shopping. Walk to Soho or to Brooklyn Bridge.
