Explore Chinatown

Of course the dim sum is outstanding, of course there are open-air fish markets — but until you're in Chinatown, you don't realize how incredibly convenient it is to, well, everything downtown. The twisting streets make you feel like you're not on Manhattan anymore, but all of lower Manhattan is in walking distance, and you'll see all your neighbors at the Chinese New Year parade each year. Another surprise? How affordable it all is.
