chinatown

Chinatown In the 1900s, an influx of immigrants from the Fujian Province and Hong Kong province settled in what is now the largest “Chinatown” in all of the United States, that still maintains an abundance of tradition and culture brought by the Chinese-American community today. Local shops often have deep family roots where the same family has owned the restaurant or market for generations. This familial atmosphere is also experienced on the streets as residents make friendly exchanges which comes together as a community to plan neighborhood cultural events like Mid-Autumn Moon Festival and Lunar New Year for the growing number of children and families. Located in central downtown, Chinatown has been welcoming a number of new professionals and students who are attracted to the close proximity to school and work. Residents and visitors alike love the delicious asian dishes that sell for a bargain, you wonder why you ever paid $5 for coffee. Scrumptious bakeries, tea shops, and markets sell inexpensive delights from egg custard to bubble tea and all other fresh foods sweet or savory.  Commuters love the accessibility Chinatown provides, leading New Yorkers in and out of town by foot or wheels. Roll by local parks full of older residents playing Mahjong and Chinese Chess next to young people shooting hoops. For the artistic crowd, galleries, boutiques, and museums. a few blocks over towards the Lower East Side, display trending local and international creations. After dark, Chinatown lights up the best cocktail bars and party spots. Residents find their way back home to quaint walk-ups and a few new condos in the area. Chinatown continues to celebrate Asian heritage while welcoming anyone who passes through, creating an engaging and convenient neighborhood people of all cultures could call home.
