Chinatown Food Tour of New York
Chinatown is a one-of-a-kind New York neighborhood that all have heard of, but few have explored. Beginning as a tiny village near the East River in the early 1900's, Chinatown was mostly a bachelor society, seeing as Chinese immigrants were only allowed into the United States one at a time; no families were allowed in the United States. When this immigration limit was lifter in 1965, the Chinatown population exploded, and by 1980, New York's Chinatown district was (and still is) the largest of any American city. Follow your expert guide through the labyrinthine streets of New York's most colorful, mysterious neighborhood, and sample the best culinary treats the neighborhood has to offer. From world-renowned dumplings and pork buns to homemade, fresh baked fortune cookies, the Chinatown Food Tour is a delicious and authentic New York adventure you won't soon forget!
