What's Nearby

Lao Miao, a wonderful arts and antiques emporium across from the Park at 46 Mulberry Street. From ancient and pricey stone Buddhas to kitschy postcards and keepsakes, this store must be explored to be believed.

New Beef King
89 Bayard Street

Columbus Park

Below Bayard Street is Columbus Park, where you can often see people doing Tai Chi in the morning, playing table games or relaxing with their caged birds. Created in the 1890's to improve the ""Five Points"" neighborhood, it is a major recreational facility used for sports, festivals and outdoor events.
