Length: 0.8 miles / 1.3 km
Duration: 1-3 Stunden
Übersicht: Chinatown and Little Italy are so intertwined that it can be hard to properly define the borders. You can eat dim sum, then walk across the street for a cannoli, or you can get a red bean ice cream and enjoy the annual Feast of San Gennaro.

The street grid system virtually disappears here; narrow streets wind and turn. Part of the fun is wandering without a strict agenda, following your nose to a seafood restaurant or pizza place, or shopping from sidewalk vendors. You can buy knock-off designer handbags, watches and shoes--a bargain as along as you know you are buying a fake.

Tipps: It can be difficult to push a stroller (particularly a double stroller) through the crowded sidewalks or ride a bike in the streets; pedestrians often colonize the streets. Don't even think of driving here.

Points of Interest


Museum of Chinese in the Americas

Disorient yourself at the Museum of Chinese in the Americas, where videos of immigrants recounting their trip to the United States let visitors sense the challenges Asian immigrants faced.

There is a recreation of a Chinatown shop and photographs and artifacts from immigrants. The museum was designed by Maya Lin, who is perhaps best known for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., a concept she submitted through a public design competition when she was just 21 years old (1981). The 14,000-square-foot MOCA opened in 2009.

The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory

A block from the Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, Chinatown has a Haagen Dazs store. But skip that for this sliver of a shop, which has red bean, black sesame and green tea flavors, in addition to the holy trinity of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

Stop by the Mahayana Buddhist Temple, at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge, to see a 16-foot gold Buddha.
