Thousands of tourists visit Chinatown each day.  It is the largest Chinatown in the United States, the center of politics, economics, and culture of the Chinese communities in New York City. It is famous for its restaurants, jewelry shops, food markets, temples, and crowded streets, including Canal, Mott, Pell and Doyers streets whose busy sidewalks are crowed by vendors.

Museum of Chinese in the Americas (70 Mulberry Street at Bayard Street 2nd. floor), where you can explore Chinese immigrating history and culture through historic images, papers, oral stores and artifacts. For more information, call 212-619-4785.
   

Chatham Square sees two important statuses: the statue of Lin Zexu, a historic hero who is remembered for his heroic role in the19th-Century anti-opium war in China, and the Kim Lau Memorial Arch, erected in 1962,  in memory of the Chinese Americans who died in the Second World War. This is the place where Chinese New Year parade goes by every year.
