Chinatown in Sunset Park, Brooklyn

<p>
This Chinatown in western Brooklyn is the furthest thing possible from a tourist trap. It is a large and thriving community and well worth a visit.</p>
<p>
To get there, take the N train to the 8th Avenue stop in Brooklyn and then just start walking north on 8th. When I went, I barely saw a single non-Asian person, and there was Chinese everywhere. It is a great place to practice one's skills in a variety of Chinese dialects.</p>
<p>
I visited the grocery <a href="http://ellenjovin.com/review/new-york-mart">New York Mart</a> and <a href="http://ellenjovin.com/review/w-j-bookstore">W J Bookstore</a>, passed all kinds of other Chinese businesses, and generally marveled at the array of fruits, vegetables, seafood, herbs, and miscellaneous unrecognizable foodstuffs for sale.</p>
