The Official Chinatown Walking Tour highlights

Mahayana Buddhist Temple 

New York’s biggest Buddhist Temple, located at the foot of Manhattan Bridge, is also home to New York’s tallest Buddha statue, a 16-foot giant seated on a lotus leaf who presides over the serene temple surroundings.

Doyers Street

Now a colorful thoroughfare packed with cafes, restaurants and gift shops, Doyers Street has a violent past. The bend in the street is known as Bloody Angle because of the number of murders committed here by Chinatown’s Tong gangs between the mid-19th and early 20th centuries.

Five Points

Five Points was immortalized in Martin Scorsese’s 2002 movie Gangs of New York. Take a walk through the neighborhood and hear about how it transformed from a slum entrenched in gang warfare to the cosmopolitan area it is today.

Confucius Plaza 

Visit one of Chinatown’s most iconic landmarks: a 15-foot bronze statue of Chinese philosopher Confucius by sculptor Liu Shih. A Confucian proverb is inscribed into the statue’s base.

Chinatown Consolidated Benevolent Association 

The grand finale of the tour is a visit to the CCBA, established in 1883 to represent Chinese Americans living in New York. The CCBA’s president is known informally as the Mayor of Chinatown.
