the Chinatown

The Chinatown in Manhattan, NY is probably one of the earliest Chinatown in the states. It was built in the early 18th century. The neighborhood around the intersections of Canal and Mott Streets downtown contains one of the largest concentrations of Chinese living outside of Asia. The area has evolved into an Asian destination, having attracted a variety of immigrants from Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and other Asian countries. Chinatown Manhattan is famous for its reasonably priced restaurants featuring Chinese cuisine, as well as Asian grocery stores and unique gift shops.
