Imagine going from a neighborhood with genuine dim sum and Chinese dumplings to one with authentic Italian cheeses, olives, and Sicilian pastry! Ben will show you the way to these delicacies and more delicious eats (including your own fresh garlic bagel) as well as the rich history of these adjoining landmark neighborhoods. Chinese and Italian immigrants first came to New York in the 1800’s and settled on these streets in lower Manhattan now known as Chinatown and Little Italy. Their cultural contributions are legendary and are still visible in these vibrant communities.
On this walking tour you’ll go from the largest Buddhist temple in New York City, a historic tea parlor, and the oldest street in Chinatown to America’s oldest cheese shop and oldest pizzeria still thriving in Little Italy (they’ve lasted this long for a reason). Come explore the historical, gastronomical, cultural and architectural sites of two of the most colorful neighborhoods in New York!
