92 (50) China Town

It is a pretty safe bet you will see alot of Chinese people in New York City’s Chinatown. In fact, possibly more Chinese people than you will ever see anywhere outside of Asia. So if it doesn’t feel a little like China then you are probably from China in which case you probably won’t mind. Cheap gifts, interesting smells, sights, sounds and of course great food.

If you can, visit Chinatown during the Chinese New Year celebration for firecrackers, dragons, drums and parades. Go early in the morning to get the early bird special at the parking lots. Head for Canal Street and go with the flow.
