Walking to Experience New York City
Finish your walk in Chinatown and Little Italy

Above: Gives the flavour of Italy Italy. One might call it how to eat there. It's not a long list of places.

Adjacent to the Staten Island ferry docks, you'll find the South Ferry subway station.

Enter, and take either the 1 or 9 subway lines to Canal Street. (If tired, you can also take these lines to Midtown, but why not at least dine in Chinatown?)

At the Canal Street station, exit.

Have someone point you eastbound on Canal Street (toward the Hudson River).

Canal, one of the most bustling streets in New York City, offers a fascinating collection of shops serving a largely Asian immigrant population.

Walk eastbound on Canal to Mulberry Street.

Turn left on Mulberry.

Mulberry, just north of Canal, and the blocks off of it are Little Italy. Stay on busy streets here, and you should be safe.

Although still the spiritual heart of New York City's large Italian American community, Little Italy's former residents now live mostly in the outer boroughs and suburbs. You'll still find restaurants and stores, but most residents are now of Asian descent in this neighbourhood.

Return to Canal, and turn right.

One block east of Mulberry, you'll come to Mott Street.

Turn right, and walk south on Mott.

This is the heart of Chinatown. Dr. Voyageur picks any restaurant packed with people of Chinese descent.

Feel free to explore any street that has lots of people on it in this fascinating area that has been revitalized by a nearly open immigration policy during the last four decades.

Return to Canal Street.

Subway stations dot Canal Street. From any you can return to Midtown Manhattan.

Have a great time on your New York City walk!
