    This Lower Manhattan neighborhood covers approximately two square miles between Broadway and Essex Street, with its center residing at the intersection of Canal Street and Bowery. The largest Chinatown in the United States, it also has one of the densest Chinese immigrant populations in the West.

    Hundreds of Asian markets, restaurants, and small family businesses create a distinct cultural enclave that has outlasted many of New York’s other immigrant neighborhoods. Office space in Chinatown is appealing not only because of its convenient Lower Manhattan location and affordable prices but also because of its place within a vibrant community with a strong cultural identity.

Access to the Canal Street Subway station, which provides convenient transportation around the city, is an added perk.

    Chinatown’s borders envelop the New York City Civil Court and the New York County Criminal Court, Family Court, and District Attorney’s Office in the southwest corner. The multiple courthouses in and around Chinatown make the neighborhood ideal for public administration offices.
