⁴ᴷ⁶⁰ Walking NYC (Narrated) : Chinatown & Little Italy, Manhattan



Google Maps Route: https://goo.gl/maps/mZ5bbikiFw62qEUa7

Enjoy this narrated video of Chinatown, Manhattan.

CORRECTION: 4:05 – Chinatown, Manhattan is not the oldest Chinatown. San Francisco’s Chinatown is the oldest in the Western Hemisphere.

From Wikipedia:
“Manhattan’s Chinatown (simplified Chinese: 曼哈顿华埠; traditional Chinese: 曼哈頓華埠; pinyin: Mànhādùn huábù; Jyutping: Maan6haa1deon6 waa1bou6) is a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City, bordering the Lower East Side to its east, Little Italy to its north, Civic Center to its south, and Tribeca to its west. With an estimated population of 90,000 to 100,000 people, Chinatown is home to the highest concentration of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere. Manhattan’s Chinatown is also one of the oldest Chinese ethnic enclaves. The Manhattan Chinatown is one of nine Chinatown neighborhoods in New York City, as well as one of twelve in the New York metropolitan area, which contains the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia, comprising an estimated 893,697 uniracial individuals as of 2017.

Historically, Chinatown was primarily populated by Cantonese speakers. However, in the 1980s and 1990s, large numbers of Fuzhounese-speaking immigrants also arrived and formed a sub-neighborhood annexed to the eastern portion of Chinatown, which has become known as Little Fuzhou (小福州). As many Fuzhounese and Cantonese speakers now speak Mandarin—the official language in China and Taiwan—in addition to their native languages, this has made it more important for Chinatown residents to learn and speak Mandarin.”

If he had gone the other way on Mulberry st. You could have seen the former Ravanite club, (247 Mulberry st.) Where John Gotti and his crew hung out, (230 Mulberry st. ) is where a "Neil" Dellacroce lived, an old school gangster from "murder Inc."

Thanks ActionKid! You helped us a lot because we are going to NYC next month and we're staying two nights on Grand Ave/Little Italy. We love your video. Lots of information for people like us who never experienced NYC. Great job!

Well at least chinatown is still chinatown. Are Italians currently the main residents of little Italy or did gentrification change the neighborhood?
