Chinatown

Chinatown is a place with high increasing immigrant Chinese population of the western world, located between Tribeca, and little Italy.. It is now a colorful neighborhood, filled with posters written in Chinese with vegetables and fruit vendors and fishmongers on every street, especially in Canal Street and Mulberry. This explosion of colors reaches its maximum splendor in the first full moon of January, with the celebration of Chinese New Years, and if you are in New York you guarantee you will enjoy this spectacular event. The main tourist attractions of this area are the large number of imitation products that can be found at any of the small shops. Don't forget to negotiate on price, don't ever pay the first price offered, why not pretend you did not going to buy the article, sometimes this works and you can get a good price. To get to this colorful world is very easy most of the train lines stop by this area; look at the subway map for Canal Street, Grand St or East Broadway, Chinatown also has an information center where you can get free maps and brochures that will tell you what to do in the neighborhood. This information center is located on Canal St and the Baxter Street.
