Full description

Explore all that New York City's historic Chinatown neighborhood has to offer on a walking tour. Don't worry about getting lost along its narrow streets and corridors with your local guide, and visit spaces that are normally off-limits to the public.

After checking it at the Chinatown Little Italy Information Kiosk, head down to the old Five Points neighborhood brought back to fame by Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York movie. This was the exact spot that brought Chinatown into being in the late-1800s.

Tour the southern portion of historic Chinatown, as far south as Kimlau Square and wind your way through the labyrinth of winding roads. Stop at well-known locations like Confucius Plaza, a Taoist temple, the famed Doyers Street, and see the largest Buddhist statue in the city.

The grand finale of your tour is a visit inside the CCBA – The Chinatown Consolidated Benevolent Association, where you might catch a glimpse of the Mayor of Chinatown.
