Last month, artist Banksy was running around NYC with his art. He even made a stop in Chinatown. Did you catch it?
According to Buzzfeed, Chinatown’s Whiskey Tavern (on Baxter Street) was rated #5 out of the 17 best Whiskey bars in NYC. They are known for their spicy pickleback shots and tater tots with chipotle mayo. For the rest of the list, click here.
NYC’s Chinatown is one of America’s oldest Chinatowns. Countless movies and TV shows like “Men In Black 3″, “Spider Man 2″ and “Law & Order SVU” have been shot in the streets of Chinatown. Even the band “The Luminee” mentions Chinatown, Bowery and Canal in their song, “Ho Hey”
Most recently, a new restaurant in Chicago named “Mott Street” has opened. Guess where they got their influence? NYC’s Chinatown. Congratulations!
