Welcome to Chinatown

A pocket of downtown Manhattan rich with history and tradition.
As the largest "Chinatown" in the United States, New York's Chinatown has had roots in Eastern traditions since the mid-1800s. An influx of immigrants from Hong Kong and the Fujian Province during the 1900s helped the neighborhood to solidify its identity. Today, Chinatown remains true to its cultural heritage while inviting newcomers to explore and get to know the neighborhood.
With its rich culture and sense of tradition, Chinatown has masterfully preserved its roots amidst the ever-changing landscape of Manhattan. Explore winding streets and densely packed storefronts to discover authentic cuisines and a century's worth of neighborhood camaraderie.

Chinatown is popular among students who frequent the inexpensive bakeries and bubble tea shops around the neighborhood. From mouth-watering roast pork buns to refreshingly cool taro-flavored drinks, Chinatown offers a variety of delicious snacks to choose from. Exploring Chinatown's dining scene is a dynamic experience. Often, restaurants are under the radar and only frequented by residents in the know. There's also the experience of tasting authentic Asian cuisines. You'll learn that some of the best Peking duck, wonton soups, and dumplings are found in Chinatown, as well as Vietnamese favorites such as pho and banh mi.
Chinatown is home to a strong community of residents, many of whom stay within the borders of the neighborhood for its eateries, shops, and parks. In the afternoons, the parks are packed with long-standing residents playing Chinese chess and Mahjong, practicing tai chi, or engaging in karaoke-style concerts. Columbus Park attracts New Yorkers from all over with its basketball, soccer, and volleyball courts. Chinatown is known for its eclectic food markets. Neighbors can shop for dragon fruits, lychees, and rambutans in the fruit stands, live lobsters and frogs in the fish markets, and Asian spices and herbs in the grocery stores.
When the sun sets, Chinatown becomes an offbeat destination for nightlife. New bars like Apotheke specialize in mixology and crafted cocktails, while larger spaces like Santos Party House have been known to throw some of the most exciting parties downtown. Another popular hangout is 169 Bar, which has been around for a century and is known for its kitschy decor, cheap food and drinks, and friendly atmosphere.

The Rental Market

Primarily walk-up buildings, but a few condo buildings have popped up in recent years.
