You can make a stop during the route in direction or at the end of Little Italy
This little park in the heart of Chinatown is a good microcosm of the retired life. On any given day, the park is occupied with clusters of senior citizens around the tables. You might wonder why everyone is huddled around the tables. Turns out they're playing Chinese chess. The game can get intense and crowds can get as big as 30 strong. If you just bought some street food, say from the Chinese Couple Vendor on Canal St, you can take it to this park and watch the interesting people.
There are lots of board and ball games in this area played by locals! It is a nice sight and I appreciate the happiness the people showed in their faces. I would love to pass here every day for sightseeing but this area is far from my house. I removed one star because some corners need some scrubbing. I would definitely come back though.
