Cheap hotels near Chinatown in New York, United States
Fancy some dim sum? Dumplings? Bubble tea? Head to Chinatown, which runs up against Little Italy in Lower Manhattan (and throughout much of the Lower East Side).
This colorful and busy neighborhood boasts a wide variety of shops, including homeopathic and Eastern medicine shops, Chinese restaurants, fish markets and funky clothing boutiques.
The area is home to primarily Chinese families and immigrants, many of whom still live in 19th-century tenements. Walk around and you’ll hear Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese) being spoken and on shop signs.
Further east in the Lower East Side, Chinese establishments mix in with new art galleries, trendy restaurants, and the few remaining Judaica stores that can afford the area's skyrocketing rents.
