13 Essex Street


Good transportation Great food

Chinatown, located downtown on the east side of Manhattan, is increasingly becoming more gentrified due to the reasonable rents compared to neighboring Nolita and the Lower East Side.

As most know, the name Chinatown comes from the large Chinese immigrant population that settled here in the 20th century. Today, the neighborhood is home to one of the largest ethnic Chinese communities outside of China.
