#4 Taste Authentic Food while Exploring Chinatown.
Chinatown is a quarter in Southern Manhattan and with a population of about 100.000 Chinese inhabitants one of the largest Chinese communities in North America. The strong preservation of Chinese cultural heritage, stemming from the strong immigration waves in the 19th/20th century, can still be seen today. In Chinatown, less than 55% of the population speak English today, and the streets are characterized by Chinese characters and shops. This makes Chinatown a great place for authentic food.
