    Despite the weird smells from the fish markets, there are a lot of great restaurants around here. Get mini chinese pancakes from the cart near the corner of Mulberry and Canal- they're 15 for $1.00!

    Bargaining tip for street vendors: Always claim you have less money with you than the real amount in your wallet. They'll agree to YOUR price if they think anything higher will make you walk away.

  • Jill C.

  • The Negotiation Institute (TNI)

    Canal St. is a great way to test out your negotiation skills with the flocks of vendors selling replica bags and watches. Those vendors are negotiation PROs.

    Though still best known for its Chinese restaurants, jewelry district and food shopping, CT is also home to a bustling multicultural scene, including a host of hip nightlife spots and restaurants Read more

    NCM · June 13, 2012

    Besides the drool-worthy eats, we have lots of fun with the offbeat shopping (we’re always up for haggling over cheap, kitsch “Chinese” treasures or exotic Asian fruits that we’ve never seen before). Read more · May 1, 2012

    Un petit tour dans Chinatown, qui grignote peu à peu Little Italy. L'ambiance y est très animée, méfiez-vous toutefois des arnaques !

    No se puede ir a Nueva-York y no visitar Chinatown, el encanto de comprar en sus bazares cualquier reproducción de las mejores marcas de relojes, bolsos, pañuelos, etc... es una experiencia única.

    Большая жёлтая фабрика по производству всего подряд и нихуяненужного. Неисчислимая алгебра плотности населения на квадратный милиметр. Вторая мировая экономика внутри первой. Полный Парадоксон.
