Chinatown: A Walk Through History

Event Details

Uncover the history of one of New York City’s oldest neighborhoods!

Highlighted sites include the oldest streets of Chinatown, a Catholic church, the oldest general store in Chinatown and a Chinese eatery that catered to the needs of Chinatown’s turn-of-the-century “bachelor society.
