Chinatown, New York City



New York City's Chinatown, a tightly-packed yet sprawling neighborhood which continues to grow rapidly, is the largest Chinatown in the United States and the site of the largest concentration of Chinese in the western hemisphere! Both a tourist attraction and the home of the majority of Chinese New Yorkers, Chinatown offers visitor and resident alike hundreds of restaurants, booming fruit and fish markets and shops of knickknacks and sweets on torturously winding and overcrowded streets.

The Civic Center is anchored by City Hall, a landmark building which has been the seat of City government for 186 years. If you want to get hitched, head to the Municipal Building at 1 Centre Street. more on getting married in NYC...
