MANHATTAN’S CHINATOWN IS ONE OF THE OLDEST AND LARGEST CONCENTRATIONS OF CHINESE PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF CHINA. STILL COMPRISING MORE THAN 90,000 INHABITANTS AS OF TODAY, ITS COLORFUL BANNERS AND BUSTLING STREET MARKETPLACES ARE A PERSISTING FIXTURE OF LOWER MANHATTAN. IT CAN TRACE THE START OF ITS HISTORY DOWN TO GUANGZHOU-BORN BUSINESSMAN AH KEN; THE FIRST PERSON TO PERMANENTLY SETTLE IN THE AREA’S MOTT STREET AND OPENED A CIGAR SHOP IN PARK ROW IN 1858.
