 10 Best Chinatowns Across the USA


From USA.com


A visitor can feel as though they've left the U.S. altogether - and now they are the foreigner, a tourist in their own city.

New York City: Standing in Chinatown's crowded streets, just look north to see the spire of the Empire State Building, though it feels as if you should be continents away. This lower Manhattan neighborhood, with its crowded tenement buildings, row upon row of live markets and brightly colored vegetables, and more hole-in-the-wall restaurants than you can count, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.


In some open-air markets, like those in New York's Chinatown, the produce is stunning and artistically arranged. Some live markets, with everything from eels and frogs, can be jarring to those not expecting them; the roast duck and pork hanging in shop windows can take some getting used to. But there is endless interest in the green grocers, fishmongers and locals picking up ingredients for their evening meal - a sense that even if you were to go back one hundred years, shopping there wouldn't be so very different. With a little legwork, an out-of-towner can seek out the more authentic areas of a Chinatown versus the touristy ones. As always, the best spot, of course, is where the locals shop and eat.



New York Chinese Cultural Center (NYCCC) is celebrating its 40th birthday this year. They would like to invite you to the celebration on May 2nd, 2014 at Bennett Media Studio, 723 Washington St., with entertainment, music, dance, food, art, and culture. 


For four decades, NYCCC has been serving the community by providing high quality and authentic cultural programs and resources to schools and the public. As the region's largest and most respected Chinese traditional performing arts organization, NYCCC serves more than 30,000 students grades K to 12 in the tri-state area and over 10,000 students in New York metro area every year.   


NYCCC is on track to be the creative hub for Chinese artists in all media and the authority for Chinese culture. Our newly renovated performance studio provides creative talents a platform to develop their ideas and express their thoughts. At the mark of our 40th anniversary, NYCCC is launching an Artists Residency Program to further our mission and to support Asian American artists by providing space for creating new work in performing arts & visual arts.

Best Burger In Chinatown 
By: burgerweekly.com
Breakroom Burgers & Tacos 

There aren't a lot of burger options in Chinatown, so to call this the best burger in the neighborhood is a bit of a shallow compliment. That said, this is to date the best burger I've had in Chinatown.


Breakroom Burgers & Tacos is located at 83 Baxter Street in Manhattan, New York.
