Guided by Ask Adam

As the head concierge of Hotel 50 Bowery, I spend a decent amount of time eating, shopping and exploring Chinatown. This Sidewalk guides you to my favorite spots in the neighborhood. Come on a walk to find a specialty chopstick boutique, a traditional Chinese market and maybe even a counterfeit handbag vendor. Along the way, we'll sample barbecue pork buns, Chinese cookies, soup dumplings and Asian ice cream flavors. Whether you live in New York or are just passing through, you're guaranteed to travel somewhere new in Chinatown.
