My one and only experience of China Town in NYC was one I'll never forget. An hour of being constantly harassed, touched, avoiding unidentified objects on the floor and an unforgettable but necessary trip to McDonald's where I witnessed someone casually shooting up at an...More

Chinatown... like all chinatowns around the world are dirty. Wear enclosed shoes. Be prepared to dodge non descript things on the ground. Yes, food is cheap and there's lot of variety to choose from. Just go prepared.

This was the maddest part of quite a mad trip to New York. Thought it was amazing, the smells, sights and sounds ! Felt like we were in some James Bond movie. The best bit was the foot massage in a seedy basement !!

Visited Chinatown as part of a walking tour, interesting place. Full of vendors that sell various types of very strange looking fish, very crowded and hectic. Jolly Chriss.

Last week we had lunch five days in Chinatown: we had Cantonese, Malaysian, Thai, Hunan, and Sri-Lankan. All the restaurants were excellent.

Went for the sights you don't normally see, but there wasn't much to look at or do. The streets were extremely dirty. Shop after shop is the same stuff and most of it isn't even about Chinatown (I heart NY t-shirts, paintings with quotes on...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

I'm not sure about massaging per se. I believe they have reflexology places or something. You can get a massage in the Berkshire Mall in Reading though.

Chinatown is located in Lower Manhattan and is adjacent to Little Italy. I would suggest taking Broadway to Canal Street.
