Chinatown in New York

We hoped on a train in lower Manhattan and in three stops stepped off into a different world!  New York’s Chinatown was bustling in-spite of the light rain on Monday around noon.  We thought this would be a fun place to shop and hopefully find lunch.



Next time I would like to go more towards evening to see everything light up.




We did some shopping and poked around the few blocks that make up the district. There were many veggie and market vendors. And the expected t-shirts and bag shops.


We found the couple of souvenirs that we were looking for and did a little bargaining with a shop owner for a backpack Daughter wanted.  We found a nice lunch place and had a great afternoon!

  1. So glad you loved Chinatown, it’s definitely a NYC institution!;-) Glad I found you on the Travel Photo Thursday linkup!

  2. Chinatown really is like a brief subway sojourn to Asia. And it’s no longer just Chinatown as you can find great vietnamese, malaysian and more there now. Dim sum, a foot massage, and buying fruit you’ve never seen before from a fruit vendor are all part of the fun

  3. How fun!!!! Chinatown in New York City!!! Yes! Going at night would be awesome!

  4. We walked through it at night and ate in a Vietnamese Restaurant. The food was really tasty.

  5. Haven’t been to Chinatown in NY, but I love Chinatown in San Fran. Ate at one of the best Chinese restaurants there also. Glad you had a fun time! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
