Neighborhood Profile

The heart of Chinatown, Canal Street, is known as a popular low-end shopping area with hundreds of shops and street vendors lining up the sidewalks, offering (seemingly) almost everything at bargain prices.

Just like in most other large North American cities, Chinatown is named as such due to most of its residents' ethnicity. Today, both first- and second-generation Chinese Americans call it home, along with thousands of hipsters priced out of just about every other neighborhood.


Chinatown is cheaper than almost every other area of Downtown Manhattan and is, despite its somewhat inconvenient transport links, a great place to live. You just have to be comfortable with its street culture and smells.
