This is not the Canal Street I remember. There were very few people selling on the street. Used to be like a large street of flea market sales people. Not any more. Literally this is a waste of you time.

When you go to visit Chinatown, be sure to check out Canal Street. It is a haven for tourists full of shops selling knock off jewelry and bags. It is a lively place full of energy and plenty of shopping.

Canal Street is the main thoroughfare of NY's Chinatown. Plenty of shopping and Asian markets. Definitely a great walk through a neighborhood with a rich history.

Blocks and blocks of NYC souvenirs can be found on Canal Street-as well as other vendors. We had time to have lunch as well!

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

I think the weekdays are less crowded. We were there on a Tuesday and it was perfect.

For me, the best way is to start at the Broadway end and work your way into Chinatown, then up Mulberry Street into Little Italy. Enjoy!
