That area is packed with people all of the time so you should not have a problem. Always be careful if you are walking around very late at night, but thats true anywhere in NYC. Have fun!

You should be good. Like Rudbeckia said, it's packed and you're in the middle of it all.

I agree that you should not have any problems on Canal Street, since it always seems to be bustling.

You will be fine at that location. I do urge extreme caution when renting a "flat" rather than a hotel room. There are a lot of fraudulent people marketing non-existent "flats" for rent. Look here

Practically? That is as Chinatown as it gets. The Chinatown buses pick up a block away.

If you like to step outside your building to a serene street, you're in the wrong place.

I wouldn't be so exact. There is a preponderance of Chinese businesses on both the north and south sides of Canal St. This stretches north to Kenmare St. I would call Canal St. the epicenter of Chinatown now.
