Chinatown in New York

New York is a city full of contrasts and spectacular places to discover. The best thing is that you organize your visit by neighborhoods or districts to be able to take advantage of the time much better and get more out of your trip. One of the many neighborhoods that you can visit is Chinatown , famous throughout the world and which is getting bigger and bigger as it is constantly growing. It is worth visiting because despite having grown a lot, it remains faithful to its roots and culture, something unthinkable in places with so many architectural and technological advances.

The houses that you will find in that area are not very big since the Chinese are characterized by working almost all day, so since they do not spend much time at home they always settle for small spaces, something that for us can be distressing but with which they are delighted. In the Chinatown neighborhood you can find all kinds of shops, not only the classic Chinese ones but also typical products, food, restaurants or fashion. It should be noted that in this neighborhood there are no days off or holidays, so people work every day without exception in all its shops and restaurants.

As for its streets and what you can find there, the main one is Canal Street and in it you can find the largest number of stalls selling bags, glasses, hats, clothes of any kind and a lot of counterfeits of many important brands at really low prices. In Grand Street is where you will see more Chinese since not only all the stores are also theirs but almost all of them live there and are usually there since there are many food stores, especially fishmongers.

Finally, in the heart of Chinatown you will find Moot Street , a parallel to Broadway Avenue and that crosses the entire neighborhood from north to south, so it is ideal for you to take it from one end to be able to travel the entire neighborhood on the same street and around the corner stroll through several.
