"You have to think Pink."

Thinking of Pink may conjure up the panther or the singer but in Chinatown it stands for a high quality and pretty funky jewellery store in Baxter Street. I tend to leave shopping to the little lady but the designs and styles of some of the bracelets and bangles were eye-catching to say the least so I had to have a look too. Perhaps this was a ruse to get me to bring my wallet in but either way, its well worth a look.

"Hidden, but worth a visit"

Baxter street is one of those that is nestled amidst some of the greater known streets of Chinatown, such as Canal st and Mott st. On the corner of Baxter and Canal st, there is a small shopping center which has a great collection of bargain goods and great gifts, and of course like all areas in Chinatown, you can haggle your price. Baxter street also has some pretty decent restaurants,although they are very small, so if you come to ea there, don't expect to be able to linger over your dumplings. It's a nice street to visit, i liketo pass by here when i'm strolling through Chinatown. It is also easy to get to since all of the lines have a Canal st stop. The closest to this particular street, however, is the 6 stop on Lafayette and Canal.

"A street that caters to it's community"

Baxter Street is not all that well known, and for good reason, there is not much going on. The street however is nestled right in with some of the more famous areas and can be a nice location for getting around the lower side of the city. Nha Trang Restaurant is a good stop for a very quick bite to eat. Jaya Malaysian Restaurant is another good restaurant in the area. It is one of the quieter pass ways through lower Manhattan with some unique finds of it's own.

"This is Baxter Street"

Baxter Street

I found something pretty cool on this street that I didn’t know about! NYC Mini Mall which is filled with bargain goods is located at the corner of Baxter and Canal. It’s filled with what some people would call junk, but as long as it’s cheap, I’m going to give it a second look. Living in the city is very expensive, and if you are looking to become a true New Yorker, you’ll need to learn how to cut corners!

This village is best accessed by the followed Metro Stations: 1,2 Houston Street, A,C,E, Spring Street, Prince St N,R,W, Broadway-Lafayette, B,D,F,V, Bleeker St, 4,6 2nd Ave- Lower East Side F,V, Canal St 1, 2, Canal St, A,C,E, ...N, Q R,W,... 4, 6,... J, M, Z, Grand St, B, D Bowery, J, M, Franklin, 1, 2. It is also very well accessible by the bus system!
