Chinatown, New York, NY, USA
Make your own way to Duarte Square to meet your guide and start your walking tour. 

Begin in Soho, which is known for its architecture, cafes and restaurants, and shops. Hear how Soho became one of the city's trendiest and most expensive neighborhoods for real estate as you stroll down Greene Street, and see architectural gems such as the Haughwout Building and the Old Police Station. 

Make a quick stop in Nolita to taste a classic cheesecake, then continue into Little Italy for Italian favorites such as pizza, cannoli, and gelato. You'll also get tips on good spots on Mulberry Street.

Pass the Manhattan Bridge as you walk into the heart of Chinatown. Stop at the Mahayana Buddhist Temple to see a huge Golden Buddha statue, and stroll down Doyer Street as your guide details how the neighborhood has changed over the decades. Sample a traditional dumpling and the goodies at The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, and learn about the Five Points neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, which was an infamous slum in the 1800s.

Expect to cover about one mile (1.5 km) at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops. Your tour ends in Chinatown.
