According to the Commercial Observer, Chinatown's hotel industry is helping the local economy. After the 9/11 attacks 13 years ago, Chinatown was one of the neighborhoods in downtown Manhattan that suffered. After the attacks, Robert DeNiro, a resident of Tribecca, brought his friends to Chinatown to help boost the economy.
Now, with the 9/11 memorial, SoHo, and Lower East Side bars, restaurants, and businesses, downtown Manhattan is prospering again. Many companies are building hotels in Chinatown and we look forward to seeing their success!
