I have very found memories of Chinatown in New York City. As a teenager Chinatown was the neighborhood I knew most. I spent a lot of time walking up and down Canal street and some surrounding streets. I was a shopaholic from a young age and China town was my place to go for shopping and amazing Chinese food. Years later the vintage me explored a bit beyond Canal street for really delicious Vietnamese and dim sum restaurants.

I think I've been on a Chinese food kick for a few years now. It's such a tasty cuisine that I just can't get enough of and can eat everyday. I was in the mood this past weekend for some great dim sum and wanted to really explore Chinatown beyond the familiar streets and areas I've known for years. I wanted to get lost and discover new parts of this historic and visually stimulating neighborhood. I started on Canal street and ventured down streets I had never seen before. I loved all the shops with Bonsai plants and flowers, markets with fruits I had never really seen before, tasty bakeries and really colorful murals.

I must have walked around for hours. I was wearing an amazing flowy 70s dress and didn't mind turning a few heads. I ended my trip to Chinatown with great dim sum at the Vegetarian Dim Sum house on Pell street. I left Chinatown with sore feet from hours of walking, a bag of delicious treats from a few bakeries and found memories of being lost and discovering new parts of Chinatown that never knew existed. I have fond memories of Chinatown in New York City and look forward to going back.

Have you been to Chinatown in New York City lately? What's your fondest memories of this neighborhood? 

Love,
