Best Chinatown Movers

As a neighborhood steeped in Eastern traditions, Chinatown formed in the mid-19th to early 20th century during a boom of immigrants relocated to New York City seeking opportunity. Fast forward to today and you’ll find a thriving and densely-packed neighborhood that is both home to a large Chinese population and a top tourist spot as the biggest Chinatown in the country. Living in this part of downtown Manhattan puts you in the middle of booming produce and seafood markets, restaurants, as well as rich cultural history and experiences.

Need assistance navigating the narrow streets of Chinatown to your new address? Help is on the way from experienced full-service Chinatown movers when you call Piece of Cake Moving and Storage.

Our Top Chinatown Moving Tips

Though the edges of this downtown locale are described as being elastic and somewhat debated, there are some streets that serve as more general boundaries. Rough estimates include Delancey Street to the north and Chambers Street to the south. East to West, you’re looking at Broadway to Henry and Essex Streets. If you’re looking for a different vibe, you’ll be close by to the hip neighborhoods of Tribeca and the Lower East Side.

But, you’ll want to better know this market-laden spot as your new home, so here’s a bit of what’s in store for you in Chinatown:

  • What’s on the menu. NYC has many fantastic flavors on offer throughout the five boroughs, and Manhattan’s Chinatown is a big contributor. That said, this neighborhood serves up delicious taste without the steep price tag (whereas you may set your expectations to spend a pretty penny dining for a delectable dish in other parts of the city). You’ll find plenty of local Asian bakeries and bubble tea establishments. There’s also plenty in the way of open food markets for you to bring fresh produce and seafood home with you that you may not find in your local grocery. If you’d rather sit down and be served, there’s plenty of places to choose for that as well. Try Ping’s for excellent Cantonese cuisine or Joe’s Shanghai Restaurant, well known for their soup dumplings. If you’re down for veggie-friendly dim sum, then it’s off to Buddha Bodhai Kosher Vegetarian Restaurant. Evenings that end sweetly are ones fondly remembered, so topping off your night with a few scoops of sweet red bean or durian (a well-known pungent, but tasty Asian fruit) ice cream from the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory may be just what’s on order.
  • Community and shared public spaces. There may not be a ton of greenspaces in this area, but there is a strong residential community and they do enjoy what spaces are around to consume and commune. You’ll find your neighbors shopping in area stores and eateries as well as playing mahjong, chess, and practicing tai chi in the great outdoors. Though there’s not a lot of greenspace, there are some nearby parks to enjoy.  Columbus Park contains basketball courts and a playground and Collect Pond Park, the former site of the notorious Five Points neighborhood, is also in the area. It features a nice plaza, pond, and a plethora of benches to relax and take in the downtown scene. If you’re on bike or on foot, traversing the busy Manhattan Bridge will take you from Chinatown to Brooklyn’s DUMBO and back — so no need to worry about getting your daily physical activity minutes in!
  • Cost of living. First, you’ll need a place to live. A lot of the apartments for rent in the neighborhood are walk-ups that put you atop of local restaurants and shops. Around the perimeter, there are some bigger and newer condos you might be interested in checking out. When it comes to price, Chinatown may be a little less expensive than some of the surrounding areas. Make no mistake though, city livin’ ain’t cheap. The average rent for a one-bedroom apartment is $3,500, which is up over 50% from the previous year. If you’re looking among the home listings for sale, the median cost is just under $1 million ($995,000). The good news is that while you may pay a chunk of change for your address, getting around the city won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Riding public transit is both easy and economical. The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) offers one-way rides on subways and buses at a cost of $2.75 each. And, many subways converge on Canal Street, one of the busiest thoroughfares in the area. So, you’re likely to be able to board the train that’ll take you where you want to go.
  • Culture and entertainment. Much of the draw of this neighborhood is enjoyed during daylight hours. One particular draw is the beautiful celebration of Chinese Lunar New Year in February each year. Better Chinatown NYC organizes the festival, featuring dragon dancing, beautiful garments, and martial arts performers. You can also grow your appreciation for Chinese culture in America at the Museum of Chinese in America. If your tastes in art and culture skew strange, visiting the tiny Mmuseumm may quench your thirst for oddities on display. After these spots close for the day, it’s good to know that Chinatown isn’t known for being a nightlife hotspot. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t find a few places to let your hair down with some drinks (if you choose). For instance, you may want to take the fun Up Stairs on Canal Street for some $1 karaoke, cheap drinks, and finger foods. Or, perhaps cocktails are in order, then you may want to grab a seat at Peachy’s. Either way, you can get your late night scene fix if you want it.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
