New York's Chinatown, in downtown Manhattan, has one of the largest populations of Chinese people outside of Asia.  Its strong link to Chinese culture can be experienced by trying the delicious authentic cuisines found in its restaurants, specialty shops, and markets. This area has grown and diversified to include many other Asian populations including Vietnamese and Malaysians, which can be seen in the grocery stores and restaurants that feature foods and products from all around Asia.  

Aside from the Chinatown in Manhattan, which is the most well known, there's also the Flushing Chinatown (in Queens) and the Brooklyn Chinatown. "Bursting with authentic culture, exciting chaos and sumptuous food, New Yorkers are lucky to be able to trek in and out of these communities as often as one please but as a visitor, New York Chinatown is a must have experience during a trip to New York."
