New York City - SoHo & Chinatown (PDF Chapter)
This is the SoHo & Chinatown chapter from Lonely Planet’s New York City guidebook.
Like a colorful quilt of subneighborhoods sewn together in mismatched patches, the areas orbiting SoHo feel like a string of mini republics. Style mavens boutique-hop in Nolita, Italo-Americans channel Napoli in ever-shrinking Little Italy, and Chinese families gossip over xiao long bao in hyperactive Chinatown.
- max out the credit cards on SoHo’s big-name fashion streets, then hunt out lesser-known labels on the cognoscenti sidewalks of nearby Nolita and NoHo
- slurp soup dumplings and haggle for designer wares of ambiguous authenticity amid the sizzling lights of Chinatown
- get your fix of rich sugo or a delicate tiramisu, while listening in on grandfathers sipping grappa and speaking in the mother tongue in Little Italy
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
