It's the old police headquarters on Broome St. It's really beautiful.

great walk! I have walked on Boston's liberation trail, it was nice! We should develop more city trails.

WOW! Awesome tour man! Never been to NYC. My cousin lives in NYC and he loves the city so much. I can't wait to visit him and this beautiful and great city. I just love those buildings with the stairs outside. So New York.

Actually, the Chinatown in Lower east side is kind of very old one, and full of small shops of handicrafts. It is absolutely not a complete showcase of China, especially China today. When I first came to NYC, I couldn't believe that how dirty and messy China town is, later on, with more times of going there and get more familiar with the place, I feel more comfortable with it, and there are some really great restaurants, and the taste is more original than the Chinese restaurants that tend to fit the American taste, compare with those that outside of Chinatown.

If you think about it, Chinatown in Manhattan can actually pass up for actual blocks as if they were taken from China itself.

Can you do other Chinese neighborhoods in NYC? Like the one in Queens and the one in Brooklyn? Please!

Very nice pics once again; those areas (Little Italy, Chinatown) are near to Brooklyn or not?

New York is wonderful. A true sister of London.

The bridge you see in many of those photos, the one right on top of the buildings, is the Manhattan Bridge and it crosses the East River to Brooklyn. It's right next to Brooklyn if you don't count the water lol.

Three things

1) Chinatown is CRAZY!
2) I agree with Sequoia, NYC needs some tourism/history walks/trails.
3) Great tour!

And I think the Italians should have brought more of their own architecture to the new world. Little Italy could be more interesting.

And I've only noticed it right now, but these staircases outside the buildings, they're really an odd thing haha. Are they required in all residential buildings?
The stairs are fire escapes, and yes they are required on residential buildings.

Great shots!
