Manhattan’s Chinatown is a bustling enclave of Chinese culture and is one of the oldest Chinatowns in the U.S. It contains a unique vibe — vendors line its streets offering a vibrant mixture of produce and wares, while colorful storefronts allow locals and tourists alike to weave in and out amidst the NYC merchandise, trinkets, and jewelry. Bordered by the Lower East Side to its east, Little Italy to its north, and Tribeca to its west, there is a multitude of restaurants and bars to choose from throughout and nearby the area.
Chinatown’s perks include fast access to other Manhattan neighborhoods through numerous subway lines and historically low home prices, but its unique charm has led to a recent influx of luxury real estate developments. Still, the neighborhood retains its identity, maintained through the stimulating streets during the daytime and active nightlife spots and restaurants.
