    There are some interesting architectures to see in Chinatown. Well, maybe it's just the facade. Click the photo to see Charles Schwab and Starbucks in a building with Chinese decor.

    Chinese food

    by SuzanBengtsson Written May 26, 2003

    Have a taste of the true authentic Hong Kong chinese food. Dim Sum, Barbeque ducks and CHinese stir fries. You will find some of the cheapest food in Chinatown during your stay in New York.

    China Town is not only a place for shoping bags, glasses, etc. Exotic food from Asia is also easy to find... seafood, fruits, meat...

    China Town, frogs...

    While you walk through crowded Chinatown streets, in the very core of downtown Manhattan, you will realize that the Chinese have succeeded in preserving their culture.

    Even out of the not very clean area of China Town, you can find these scenes that you would expect to find in the Far East.
