“Southerner with a vehicle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Okay so many times the New Yorkers questioned why would I ever drive in New York. Well the answer was simple, I wanted to take my time and see it all. Chinatown is a must but the parking is crazy as usual. We were lucky that a lady in one of the shops told us that we were in the wrong spot and needed to move to another. The arch is great. Be sure to enjoy the food. I was able to find a wonderful gluten free noodle house and loved the people and the food in it.

“Cool to see the archway, but nothing else impressive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

After taking the metro to Chinatown, the archway was a very nice welcome. Well, that was the only welcome we got. The store owners were not very friendly, a lot of the restaurants looked dirty and there were people on every corner begging for money. We walked around for a bit, then realized that the archway was the best thing about Chinatown, so we boarded the metro for somewhere else. Cool to say that we went to Chinatown, but that's about it.

“China town or is it China Quarter?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Beautiful ornate gateway to Chinatown right next to the Verizon center. Comes into its own at night when lit.
