New York Catacombs by Candlelight

Perfect for history lovers, this tour of the historical Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan invites you into the catacombs, allowing you to see its pipe organ and venture to parts of the building that are normally closed to visitors. Beat the crowds on this tour and enjoy a personal encounter with this New York landmark.

We visited Chinatown in Manhattan on October 2nd, 2020 to buy some I Love NY Souvenirs to bring back to Germany. The movies and TV shows Manhattan as a very nice and trendy destination, little did we know, our Chinatown trip was a misunderstanding. There seems to be a dangerous criminal element walking around for food, not to mention the smell. We watched people shoot up drugs, urinate on garbage bags, disgusting as it sounds, we would never return back to Chinatown in Lower Manhattan. My wife and I felt unsafe in this environment, next time stick to Little Italy or SoHo.

Little restaurants, bakeries, and holes-in-the-wall galore, with amazing food. Shops and markets with all kinds of fishes. You can't go wrong, just sample everything.Come back many times and sock in the atmosphere.

Chinatown has the largest concentration of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere. Some 90,00 to 100,00 people of Chinse origin live here. It has dozens of Chinese restaurants and other shops. Chinatown is in the Lower East Side, near the old Jewish neighbourhood of Hester St. The Ghetto has few Jewish residents and there are few Italians left in Little Italy., but Chinatown gets larger and larger. Some 66 percent of Chinatown's residents are Asians. By the way, be careful selecting your accommodation, we had the worst hotel ever in Chinatown.

In all honesty I expected more than what it looked like but it was still a great area. A must visit to Doyer St, which was known as murder street due to amount of people killed on there. We had something to eat and it was fantastic. We did some haggling in the shops and got some bargains.

Chinese food is good but one need to pay attention to bed bugs in some hotels. My ex-girlfriend and I was bitten by them. Actually I visited there at Dec 2017.
