Very Interesting Area

Our son took us to a nice restaurant in the area. This is a great area for sightseeing. It's always good to venture out into another culture.

Very crowded and busy but real picture of a multi cultural place. Great and very cheap Tai and Chinese food. Good enough to lick your chopsticks! :)

We didn't find anything remarkable about our visit to Chinatown. It's worth a walk I suppose but nothing too remarkable going on. If you are looking for some cheap and crummy T-shirts this is the place for you. We should have eaten someplace to truly experience the area, but we opted for Little Italy for a restaurant. I give it... More

With all the small storefronts, and the many restaurants, if you can't find something to your liking here, it doesn't exist! Don't mind the crowding and tight quarters, it is an old neighborhood and popular with tourists.

There is a Chinatown in every borough now. Very convenient for the Chinese in Brooklyn. There are many good restaurants and shopping venues. Otherwise known as 8th Avenue.

Wow, there is nothing like Chinatown in Wisconsin. This was so interesting and fun. I learned so many new things clulturally, just by walking the streets and asking the local shop owners or others questions. I am so happy that I have been privaledged enough in my life to be able to visit some of these places and experience first... More

I spend a half day in Chinatown, this place is amazing to visit, because it is a own world inside New York City. In the morning very empty, but later one the day the streets are full of people who do business. I you like to try asian food, look for places with only a chinese language menu and enjoy... More

This was the worst part of my NYC visit. Don't go out if your way to see this like I did. It's dirty and crowded and everyone trying to get you to buy knockoff purses and watches. Couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Why not visit Chinatown while in NY!!? Plenty of shopping, not super cheap but reasonable I suppose. Not a huge fan of the food but love the atmosphere. Go just for the experience and visit the Chopstick Shop!!
